Hello everyone, I received an appointment from KP a couple weeks ago contingent upon gaining medical qualification. I had two kidney stones 5 and 6 years ago which dq'd me and USMMA put me in for a waiver to BuMED, but they requested additional information (a nephrologist [kidney doctor] consult and a CT scan). The CT scan showed three tiny stones, two in my left kidney and one in my right. As you can imagine this news is just the latest in a string of heartbreaks. I am visiting the Academy tomorrow and am due to get my consultation with the nephrologist (who is very supportive of my goal to serve) later this week. I believe they will probably deny my waiver since I have stones right now. Is there anything I can do to fight this medical decision? Is there anyone at KP that I can talk to that could help me? What should I do next because I don't want to give up? And finally, is this incredibly minor issue going to stop me from serving my country in the armed forces?
