So basically; ages ago when i was a fat child i had asthma; i grew out of it but my Mother kept getting pumps out as precautionary measure; the last time she got one was 2 years ago. I recieved my letter back from the Medical and they said i could "appeal" or just wait until 2010. I don't really want to wait... Would Appealing be a waste of my time or does it work? Also a second query my friend who i have been training with; he was deferred for 4 months because of back pain, he says he still has back pain but doesn't want to let the doctor know just encause a 4 month deferrel turns into a permenant one... Thanks for any Advice given.
