    ds had a "left medial distal femur osteochondroma" removed by outpatient surgery when he was 14. there was no evidence of other osteochondromas which might indicate osteochondromatosis - which is listed as a disqualifying condition on the dodmerb list.

    first of all, has anyone experienced this type of concern on their dodmerb exam?

    ds is a junior and will be turning in an NROTC scholarship app here in a few months as well as applying to acadamies.

    in preparation for this summer, should I go ahead and ask the dr. who did the surgery for a final report of some kind from that time period? I kept the papers which were given to me, like the pathology report stating no malignancy, etc. but wonder if this is enough to prove no osteochondromatosis?

    he went on to run track and cross country after this surgery with absolutely no problems btw.

    That might be a good idea, I really don't know, but I hope everything works out. If there has been no problems it certainly shouldn't affect it, I wouldn't think, but I just don't know. I will be praying that everything works out.

    I am a little bit worried because the doctor said I had a heart murmur and minor scoliosis, (although I prayed and believed for healing and now he can't find either), but he sent me out for the heart thing, and I am a little worried about that.

    God Bless,
    Ashleigh
