Will i pass the medical?

#1
I had cancer when i was 1 years old. I had chemotherepy to clear the cancer and had one kidney removed. I mentioned this when submitting my medical records to ADSC but it has been over 3 weeks now and no reply.
I noticed that the medical mentioned that people with cancer would be ok as long as they had been clear for years and i have been, yet my family are convinced I will not be allowed in.

Can anyone clear this up for me?

The one kidney may cause a problem, I'll have to check though.

from JSP 346

Absence, loss or malfunction of a kidney.
Candidates with only one functioning kidney may be acceptable provided that there is no evidence of disease in the remaining kidney, i.e., no persistent abnormality on urinalysis and a measured GFR6 of at least 60ml/min, in the absence of raised blood pressure. All cases meeting the above criteria and potentially acceptable should be referred to the single Service Occupational Physician responsible for selection of recruits. Candidates with renal transplants are graded P8.
