Hello! I developed appendicitis on Wednesday and have since had the bugger removed. Now, I was assured by several doctors that it would not at all affect me joining the Army and in six weeks maximum it would be as if it had never happened. Since then I have contacted my Careers Office - the people 'in the know' - and was informed "I don't know what happens now... I'll get back to you". So I waited, and impatience got the better of me and I rang them again. My careers advisor is now on leave, and won't be returning for a little while. I have searched the site, but the only post I can find informed me that someone was deferred for a year, which isn't very comforting. It would be great if someone could confirm this or scoff at me and say I'll be fine and I need to get over myself and get stuck in (please do). Thanks in advance!
