Chilwell medical – Bowen’s disease

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Cilwell_question, Dec 7, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Apologies for posting this in multiple forums but I’m hoping to catch the attention of one of the doctors who perform the medical at Chilwell.

    It’s suspected I may have Bowen’s disease, it’s just a 1cm spot on my wrist.
    I’m waiting on a biopsy to confirm.

    Is this something that may prevent me from mobilising?

    That's pretty worrying mate.

    Your wrist could eventually go completely limp and you can end up looking like this....

    I presume that everything is not Super Smashing Great then?
  4. Ever the optimist I’m sure it will all be fine.

    Right now I’m concerned Chilwell are going to see this on my medical records and send me packing.
    I’ve heard of them rejecting people for a lot less.

    Unusual question, have your MOD powers told you who I am?
  5. If you have Bowens disease you might find the following phrases to be of use:

    “Super, smashing, great”

    "Stay out of the black and into the red, Nothing in this game for two in a bed."

    "Look at what you could have won."

    "And Bully's Special Priiiiize..."

    "Now the cash you won for charity earlier... that's safe."

    "Iiiiiiin one..."

    "You win nothing but your BFH... Bus Fare Home"

    "I've got £5000 here and it'll take me two minutes to count out."

    "All for the throw of a dart"

    "You've got the time it takes for the board to revolve..."
