Gastric sleeve surgery

Status
Not open for further replies.
Hi,
I have recently just had gastric sleeve surgery, already lost over 100lbs. I am hoping to join the army in a couple of years. I was wondering if anyone has joined the army after having gastric sleeve. It looks like it is classed as a P8 saying that medical check ups are needed which is not true. My surgeon has said that all army duties can be done and he can sign off on that. I do not need to take any medication after having this surgery and I could eat around 3000-4000 calories if needed (I am a woman so less calories are needed to maintain weight) please let me know if anyone has been through this process or has any insight
