Morning all.
Broke my ankle in 2009 and had a plate in there And this year wanted to join the army Reserves. So fill online applications, had interview, all good, so onto the assessment centre, 2days before that, had the letter no one wanted. Rejected. :-( Osteoporsis they said.? So I appealed with my medical records and a cover letter and a letter off my GP, after he examined me, fit and well ankle back to normal, with full movement and full strength.
But now my appeal was rejected.! Is it worth fighting this or just leave it as it is. Do I get a physio, more tests to prove that I haven’t got Osteoporosis..

Any help would be appreciate. Thank you.

Well they've made their decision based on medical evidence available and also from what you doctor and have found you medically unfit even after an appeal.

I'd get a specialist consulation, ask for a referral from your GP?

No worries thanks mate appreciate it.

I have metalwork in my ankle that’s why it’s been rejected, I’ll get all the info in and send another appeal in.

Is the metal work permanent? If it is, I don’t think you’ve got a chance unfortunately. Do put in an appeal though

what is the metalwork in place for? does it involve the ankle joint?

with some specifics, we can possibly help a little more

for example

Previous fracture with surgical fixation141. A period of at least 12 months must have elapsed since the latest surgery in all cases before selection, as remodelling following a fracture often takes up to 12 months.
a. Upper limb fractures. Candidates with upper limb fractures whose union is confirmed, without deformity, with no tenderness over the area of metal work/fracture site who are asymptomatic with exercise comparable with military training over the last 3 months and have full function of the joints above and below the injury may be graded P2.
b. Lower limb fractures. The same conditions apply to candidates with lower limb fractures. If surgery has resulted in restitution of anatomy, the candidate may be acceptable provided they are symptom-free with activity comparable with military training for 3 months and have been referred for specialist assessment. Candidates who have received complex surgery involving joints or surgical fixation of major upper and lower limb joints are normally graded P8 as early osteoarthritis is the norm
