kidney stones

#1
Hi there,

I'm a submariner currently serving on an A Boat based in faslane and have been having issues with kidney stones....several trips back and forth to sickbay have taken place and I'm currently downgraded for this. the doctor said that i may possibly be unfit for submarines as i have a family history of this and it is not the first time i have had issues with kidney stones. Does anyone have any idea if this does indeed usually make you PMU for submarine service or any other advice etc other than they bloody hurt!

cheers

SC how long you been in boats? At sea dived is not the best place to have an illness,submarine doc.'s are mainly for reactor health not jack health, they probably would not have much to treat you with, as AD said irresponsible by pusser

yes they are pretty painful...i've been on boats for almost 6 years now and am waiting my next appointment with the doc. If it is decided that i am no longer able to go to sea on a boat then what if any are the options then given to me?

Big ships with a doc onboard and spare capacity if you go T.U.?
