    I just took my dodmerb exam and the doctor said I'm at risk for hernias. I have never actually had one. I'm just "at risk." is that a disqualifer?
    Thanks!

    Here is what 6130.03 says about hernias:

    Abdominal Wall
    (1) Current hernia (except for small or asymptomatic umbilical hernias), including but not limited to uncorrected inguinal (550) and other abdominal wall hernias (553).

    It doesn't make any mention of "at risk" as being a disqualifier. Without knowing how the Doctor came to this conclusion, I would not get upset over his comment.
