  1. Hi, went for 2nd medical today and have been failed due to a low peak flow and because my bmi was under ? Does this mean I am perm unfit or can I reapply ? I've had ECG's, echocardiogram and all of that from my first medical. I applied over 9 months ago gutted isn't the word

  2. I'm sure the doctor said at the end if you were TMU or PMU?

  3. She just said I would need to reapply in like a year
  4. Well I guess that's your answer. If you were PMU then you wouldn't be able to reapply. You will find out the best advice from your AFCO.
  5. spoke to a Lt in the medical department and he said I would need to do a peak flow Diary and prove my weight is up but capita doctor and AFCO have said PMU for a year
  6. You're TMU which is why they've given you a year, if you were PMU then it's Goodnight Irene.

    I think that her name is Rebecca Imogen born in 1991 Wrecks, I don't know where you got Irene from.

  8. Oh, bless her :)
  9. I agree with Wrecker - you have been given the year to improve your BMI to meet the entry requirements. This is for your musculo-skeletal health during basic training which will put your bones, joints, ligaments etc under a lot of stress. As for your Peak Flow diary, I suggest you start this a month before your year, so everything is all lined up when you go back to the Doc. Good luck.
