Hi all, I am currently in the TA and was hoping to do Herrick 18. However, the last 3 years or so I have been getting the odd bout of chron's disease. When this occurs, the only thing that settles it down will be prednisolone for say 5 - 8 weeks at a time but then I'll be fine for another 6 months or so. Prednisolone is a corticosteroid anti-inflammatory which is prescribed to me by my GP. If I mention this during a medical, I know I will never ever get to deploy anywhere and will feel there is no point in being in the TA as Ill be stuck being a 'brew bitch'. Anyway, if I didnt mention it at chilwell and was on prednisolone at the time, are they able to find out? either by blood testing or a CDT? I am just curious. I'd take my medication with me so if the symptoms occured I'd have something to keep this problem at bay. I am a signaller so I wouldnt see myself doing war fighting unless I was sent out to a FOB or so. Thanks for any insight.
