I'm about to re apply to the navy after I decided to PVR at phase 2 in 2010. I spoke to the AFCO and told the PO that I'm about to have a small hernia operation and my doctor told me Ill recover within 2/3 week and would be able to get back to the gym and doing extreme sports 4/5 week later. He said this shouldn't be an issue and advise me to start the application and bring my discharge papers. I'm abit worried about this as I know a few people have gone through the processes to find out that when they get to the medical the doctor refuses entry because of other issues that wouldn't even seem like an issue. I saw on Navy School documentary first episode that the 32 year old guy had a heart opp and was allowed to rejoin a year later. So it make me think a small hernia wouldn't be an issue. Any advise would be great or your experiences with a similar issue.
