Hey folks, I'm hoping to apply to the RN after I've finished my degree. The problem is I have an annoying condition called Hyperhidrosis, which causes my hands and pits to sweat excessively, its a complete pain in the arse when you've got a decent level of fitness yet you're struggling to remove a cap from a pen. I've been looking into treatment for this problem for years, and I've finally decided (after doing lots of research) to go for the surgical option, its a spinal surgery which involves cutting two nerves. My only fear is that the RN would have a highly negative view on pre-application medical surgery - especially in the spinal region. I'm just wondering if anybody might know what the RN's stance on this topic would be? I'm hoping if the surgery is a success, and side-effects are nonexistent or nonintefering, that it won't hinder my chance of entry. Cheers for any info, K.S.C -edit- Ah, bugger, I completely overlooked the Newbie folder.
