For those on here with a sharp tongue, I am aware there is an abundance of medical threads knocking about, however I thought I'd share my experience as I was particularly dreading the medical. I was informed by my CA that 90% don't pass first time. I got myself so worked up and worried after reading some of the issues people seem to have stumbled across regarding their medicals. TMU/P8, waiting time if TMU, the issues that caused them to be TMU/P8. It all seemed very stringent and intimidating. Now all I can say is I'm going to assume it's the luck of the draw re medical examiner, as with things such as a driving examiner for example. It comes down to interpretation of the information they have been provided. Each dr will interpret it differently to a certain extent. Other than the AFCO failing to provide my questionnaire and opticians report, everything ran smoothly. Luckily I had taken my medical records that related to everything declared on my questionnaire. The appointment went as follows:- Discussed the issues in my records (recurrent joint dislocation, recurrent headaches, 1 bout of 'depression') Answered a series of questions re general medical history Eye/ears/throat examination Height/weight in underwear Laid on a bed and had reflexes/stomach/chest/breathing checked 5 press ups in underwear Urine sample Eye test Hearing test And with that I was done, the Dr concluded he wasn't concerned about anything in my records, and that I've passed following the opticians report Being fine (which it is). I was in there all of 15 minutes. Now I obviously don't want people to read this and get their hopes up, however I found it very relaxed and not at all what I was expecting. I know things will be looked at on a case by case basis and risk assessed individually, I was just surprised at how it went so thought I'd give an insight to any one who maybe have their medical approaching.
