Hi I am looking at applying to become an officer. However, on the army website spinal surgery particularly fusion is flagged as a bar to entry. Having had this done as a result of a fall three years ago I'm wondering if someone with more experience or who is involved in the recruitment process to tell me whether this is an automatic no, or is it assessed on a case by case basis? If it's important, I cracked my L4 and L6 and pretty badly broke my L5 vertebrae, and had the L6(?) and L5 fused. Thanks for any help.
