Medical & Ear Surgery

#1
Hi just back from my application submission at my local ACO.

I'm 27yo BMI is 22, i went to the gym today and have my induction this sunday, I do smoke 20 per day but this is being tackled and being accepted by the army will give me the will power to quit.
Dont drink.

ok..........

Application in some what when good and now have to wait until a local unit gets in touch.

Heres my problem, about 7 months ago i had an operation to fix my perforated ear drum cause by infection. (Myringoplasty)

I told this to the recruiting officer and said usually you have to wait 1 year after any surgery before applying. if so am i out of luck?

I have a slight loss in my hearing on my right side about 10% from my last hearing test before was 25% loss so surgery has improved it alot.

I am scheduled to go back to the hospital in March for a final check on my operation but the last check was fine and its completely healed.

i've never had a problem with hearing since.
I'm paranoid i will get rejected and would be gutted.

whats your views?

Thanks
Kevin

Is this Regular or TA application??

It is normally 12 months from having the Operation But if you get the all clear from the doc you should be ok

Sorry TA

The last check by ENT was about 3 months ago and all i can remember is he said "its healing well, come back in 6 months for a final check", I think i will see my Local GP and get his view on it, just what to give my self piece of mind.

Your hearing operation is unlikely to be a problem. However the sense of humour bypass procedure might be.

from JSP 346

3.3.6. Perforation. Candidates with a perforated TM are graded P8. However,
candidates may be graded P2 not less than three months3 after spontaneous
healing or successful surgery to repair a perforation, provided that the TM has
returned to normal, hearing is within entry limits and tympanometry is normal.
