After being downgraded for 12 mths after slipping a disc I had a med board a few days ago, I was graded P7 last Feb and then to P3 (T) in Sep. The board said my P3 grade would stand because of what my injury was however from looking at my notes and an examination he made out my Appendix 9 to say I can deploy, carry infantry weight, do pre dep trng etc. Only stipulation was a MRA. MY CO has stated he does not want to risk it by deploying me, even though Doc says I can. The question is can a CO do that or can I contest my grading? Doc said I'll always be P3/MLD due to slipping my disc, however this will effectively end my career, do I have any other options? Ta in advance.
