Well I got the news today I will need surgery on my knee. Even though I am not in pain doc believes that my meniscus needs to be repaired given my age, level of activity and desire to attend USNA. I will miss most of XC season but once done my knee should be back to normal. I am nearly done with my USNA application (personal statement will be done this weekend) and I am waiting on teacher submittals and transcripts so DoDMERB has not contacted me yet (THANK GOODNESS) but once at 50% i will get contacted soooooooo How late in the fall can I schedule? I will be on crutches 6 wks then PT and want to be rehabbed before I have my physical. My doc is familiar with what Navy will need as far as documentation so how late can I do the physical and still be in the game? Thanks!!!
