Navy entry/Spinal fusion.

Hi there all,

I want to join the navy but I'm worried I will be refused entry. Over 5 years ago I had two operations on my lower spine. One to remove a bulge that came out of a disc and the other operation was a spinal fusion between two of the discs.

The guidelines for being refused entry state "certain spinal operations" Does my operation fall under this category? I imagine a fusion is a pretty serious operation and that's why I am concerned. Any help would be great thanks.

Mate, the only real person who could give you a good answer would be your AFCO.
