    Standard response: every case is different and no-one here can give you a definite answer. Can you? Yes, it has been done. Will you? No idea, because it depends a bunch of variables.

    All you can do is apply and make your application as strong as you possibly can, giving the branch you're applying to every reason to want to give you a waiver. However, have a solid backup plan that doesn't involve the military because you know you likely have a medical issue and given the current cutbacks waivers are harder to come by.
