Hi all, As you can see this is my first post here and I was wondering if I could pick your brains over an issue. I am currently in the process of applying for re-entry into the Service in an attempt to get back to BRNC. I was withdrawn from training with an injury, but not medically discharged however I believe that the reasons for my withdrawl are due to the injury (i.e. a lot of pain = loss of kip/concentration etc...). I eventually managed to get a full diagnosis on civvy street and it transpired that I'd bust a disc in my back. I had an op to fix it and then physio to get me back to phys. I was running and fitter than before I joined initially and I managed to play rugby at a decent enough intensity that I managed to dislocate my shoulder :roll: . My point is that if I'm in P2 condition (i.e could pass the medical examinations) why could it possibly require a 2 year post-op wait before I could re-join. It doesn't seem to make sense physiologically, nothing will have changed in 18 months time from my physical condition now. Also, is anyone aware of the process of re-entry? Is it likely to be a full application/trip to AIB for a full board/trip to AIB for an interview. Obviously in a case such as mine a rigourous medical and fitness assessment would be required for any option. I don't want to get stormy but the injury occurred on their watch and I get the feeling, from various letters requesting information from my med docs, which I've already signed to release to them, I'm being strung along until I get bored and go away. I can't help but think that if I'd fessed up about how much gyp it was causing me rather than manning up (in time honoured tradition) it could have been sorted in-house with only the disappointment of backclassing to contend with.
