P8 'Medically Rejected' - Kidney Stones

Status
Not open for further replies.
I have recent had a small 3mm Calcium Oxalate Kidney stone (most common) pass. I passed the stone the same day as I filled in my medical questionnaire funnily enough. On the questionnaire it asks about Kidney Stones. I have filled in this part as normal and I am expecting to be graded 'P8'. Gutted!! :(

I have done some research into the subject and only seem to be finding american post's!!

I have a few questions which I need answering as I am dumbfounded on what I can do to join the army;

1. Does kidney stones permanently exclude someone from joining the army
2. If you have only had the one episode of Kidney Stones can you still join or apply to join after a given time period
3. Can you get a medical waiver from your doctor to allow you to serve
