  1. Hi

    First post so hopefully this is in the right area wasnt sure if it should be in the recruiting bit though.

    Im at the very early stages of joining and i was just about to do my BARB test two weeks ago when i was struck down with appendicitis out of the blue.

    I wouldnt be worying but im 32 and 2 months so i have a real time issue of getting in.

    Does anybody know what the army guildlines are for me to restart everything again.Careers officer said 6 months.

    What are the chances of me getting through after 6 months and then at the medical they fail me because i havent had long enough to recover.

    I was half way to having a good fitness level.normally well and only about half a stone over weight.

    Any advice would be appreciated???
