None of us here are prepared to steal Capita's thunder or that of the Senior Medical Officer by taking a guess. You are entirely in their hands so it is best not to worry too much until they get back to you.
Good luck for your career in Boats.

Passed tmu and they have sent a letter to my gp for more info, just wondering what yhe likelihood is of this making me pmu?
Further to my last post you are in the hands of the medical trade. If your GP reflects your opinion that the stone was a very minor event you should be OK. It might be worth having a chat with your GP and explain the situation and ask what he is going to say.

Right I get you!

Unfortunately it's now a waiting game...
Nobody other than capita or naval medics hq will be able to give you the answer on a pmu or tmu.

You will now experience the delight of capita and your GP failing to communicate with each other!
Word of advice by the end of every week you haven't heard anything call capita and your GP for updates.

Good luck

This is really good advice, can't stress enough chasing up your GP, followed by CAPITA consistently. Despite when they say leave it with us.
What're you going in as?
Goodluck.
