Hello all, firstly, I really like the forum and hope I am posting correctly. Brief bit of history, I was a volunteer police officer in civvie life (specials) and whilst at my day job, I damaged my shoulder, I tore the Labrum. Subsequently had repair surgery in January 2014. Upon application to the real police, I was rejected on these grounds. Gutted. Fast forward to 2016, I have applied for the Navy, I have passed my interview and psychometric, I have declared the surgery, and have had two medicals. (the first I failed the hearing due to an ear infection) No problem I was told, just come back for the hearing bit and you'll be good to go. A month ago I attend the second medical (private medical place hired out by the Navy I suppose) do just the hearing side of the medical and that's that. The Doc then asks more about my shoulder, and says "If I send this form off like this, then they will review it and say no" The very same day, I get supporting evidence that my shoulder is fine, and that I have been living with it problem free for a while now. The last time I saw an NHS consultant was October last year. That was the last I've heard of it, like I said, a month has gone by and there has been no word. Am I done for? Physically I am fit and healthy, I can lift weights and perform press-ups and chin-ups just aswell as the next bloke/lass. I know to them I am just another number on a system and they will get to me when they get to me, but for me, it's my career that I'm waiting to hear about. Has anyone had a similar issue? How long have you had to wait? Is it good news or bad that I've not heard anything yet? Thanks all for reading. Victor. Just for reference, the full name of the injury is : Labrum tear, the surgery was called bankart shoulder stabilisation, the injury occurred in early 2013, the surgery was in 2014 and after about midway 2014, I was back to full strength near enough.
