Hey guys, first time poster etc. Anyway, I was planning on joining the RN after I graduate university in June, and as far as I could tell I would have passed all the medical/fitness tests etc. (9:13 for the 2.4km on the treadmill down the gym and all the requisite push ups and sit ups etc.) Well, 2 weeks ago in a drunken stupor I decided it would be a good idea to climb onto a 12' roof, which I promptly fell off and fratcured a number of vertebrae. I did some quick research, and it appears I would only get rejected on medical grounds if I needed surgery, which I didn't. In fact, I was up and walking about (albeit with a back brace) within 5 hours of arriving at A&E. Obviously, I'm not allowed to run for another 4 weeks, but I can walk and drive with no problems. Just hoping someone could give me any clue as to whether I have ruined my chances of a naval career, or once I'm along the road to recovery, it should all be fine. Thanks for any input.
