    I have had a recurring intermittent medical issue this year(my knee bothers me off and on) that I am finally able to get looked at. I am still waiting on a test result and followup appointment. This issue does not impede me in anyway but I wanted to make sure that everything was ok before July. Am I correct in assuming that I should wait to make a dodmerb report after my followup appointment & test results? What if anything should I report if no treatment is necessary? My Dr put me on an anti-inflammatory med until I see him in a few weeks as a precautionary. any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    suck it up as much as you can. I went through the whole knee injury thing and it sucks, I ended up having knee surgery and was on crutches till the end of April. Luckily I got approved and am now at USAFA. So if its just "uncomfortable" the see if you can get by without going to the dr and getting yourself DQed, but if you think it could be something serious then get it checked out and there is always next year.

    Thanks for your reply--I know its nothing major. the orthopod thinks I bruised the underside of my kneecap and that I haven't let it have enough time to heal due to sports activities. I don't want to be dishonest but if he just wants me to rest it for a few weeks what do I report? or do I report? I guess it seems to be a non issue in alot of ways. I just wanted it looked at to make sure that it was stable and not blow it out during the summer. Thanks again
