What's the chances of me staying becuase I have only been in 3 years and love the job

Sorry to hear of your circumstances. A Medical Board of Survey doesn't necessarily result in discharge, it's pretty much routine after being medically downgraded for a year, unable to undertake your primary branch role. At the same time the service is not a charity and your future employability as an ET(ME) is the issue, following the outcome of your treatment. The decision with regard your future physical ability to do your job bears no relation to time served or job satisfaction unfortunately.

Fingers-crossed you make a full recovery and forge a successful career within the service. Best of luck.
