Hi everybody, This is my first post so please let me know if I need to make any alterations for any reason. I am applying as an observer officer in the fleet air arm, but I am having delays over my medical history. In June 2011 I had a BENIGN (Cannot emphasize this enough) growth removed from my nasal cavity. Since the operation I have had MRI scans every 6 months and check-ups (And a manual inspection) with an ENT specialist at the same intervals. When I first applied I was told that since there are absolutely no ongoing problems with me now, and my medical examination was perfect, there should be no problem scheduling these scans for when I was on leave. However, they soon changed their minds, so following my last scan and inspection, which was last thursday, I was fully medically discharged. The ENT specialist did not deem there to be any ill effect to my health whatsoever after 2 and a half years of regular inspection. So following full medical discharge and passing the navy medical, I am now being told that all of this information needs to be assembled and sent to Capita for them to do their own review, and there is a possibility of another medical. This doesn't bother me, as I know I will pass. What bothers me is the possibility that this application will continue to be dragged out and after investing a considerable amount of my time and energy into the navy already, for them to just tell me that I can't join. I applied in early June and I don't feel as if I have gotten very far at all. So my question is basically this, for anybody knowlegeable about the Navy's medical habits, is it likely that I will be given the all clear? Or is my medical history going to blight my entry? And is there any possibility of a time frame? Because at the moment I am just waiting, and if they are unlikely to let me join, I could start looking at realistic, alternate career paths to take. The Navy is my number one goal, and I don't want to be doing anything else, but I would like to know if thats a possibility. So any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou for your time.
