Hi, I am hoping to join the Navy as a Logistics Officer. I had my medical this morning and they have had to request my medical records due to being diagnosed with Perthes disease when I was 3 years old. I know it isn't an automatic bar, unless it is an active case - although as far as I know Perthes is only found in children. The doctor who did my medical said she hadn't dealt with it before, but in the handbook it says that if my last x ray shows I am clear of the disease with no further problems then it will be sent to the station commander (I think that's who) for a final decision from them. I just wondered if anyone on here has been in the same situation? Unlikely as perthes is reasonably rare, but would be a comfort to know if someone has got through before. As far as I know my last xray was clear and I know I haven't had any problems since. My peak flow was also relatively low - but I am hoping this is because I am recovering from flu and a bad cough - but I need to do that again. Thanks!
