Hi there, just found the website loads of info but i'm in need of some advice before i speak to my afco. I beleive angrydoc and ninjastoker may be able to advise........ I have my date to join HMS Raleigh in about 7 weeks time. I'm joining as a submariner. I passed my medical last year and am over 18. My medical went fine, no problems. Now, i went to see my doctor yesterday (chest infection) and he happened to find that i have a heart murmur. Now this wasnt put on my medical record yesterday, he happened to notice and suggested i go for an echo scan. Now i know i have a medical in the 1st week at Raleigh and you would have thought they would pick this up (it wasnt picked up on my original medical). Now i am not sure what to do. I dont want to go to Raleigh and be sent home due to this. Do i tell my afco and would they possibly arrange for me to see a doctor? Get my doctor to arrange the echo scan and find out the results? Just turn up to Raleigh and see what happens? Have an echo and turn up at Raleigh with them if the results are ok? I'm pretty bloody worried about this as i've been waiting so long to join etc Does a heart murmur mean a bar from selection? Any advice would be really apreciated. Thanks.
