    ok i have been in contact with the med centre and the letter being sent out is asking for further information from me ref a history of back pain i had when i was in last time , thing is physio sorted that out ages ago and i have never had a prob since , will i need to get an independant doctor or physio to certify me for this letter /
  5. Without knowing what the letter says exactly advice will be difficult to give. Does it ask you for for a formal Doctor/Physio letter, or simply asking you for information about what happened?
    Have they asked for permission to access your Civillian Medical records?

    Please tell me that you are not going to be having anything to do with communications/int/other peoples admin.

    lol and no im a storman
  8. In that case simply answer the questions (when it arrives) and return it asap.

    seems kind of simple really, a little like yourself.

    walt alert !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. I believe the only sensible course of action is to go into extreme detail about everything - and I mean everything - you have done in the last 11 months. Go into graphic and lengthy detail particularly about any activities utilising your lower back, knees, arm and wrist. These will be critical to how they view you when you finally get there. Others on here may call you a w@nker for asking such a bone question. I myself would use entirely different words to describe your efforts.
