I really could use some advice regarding my DoDMERB exam and have not been able to find an answer. This past February, I had shoulder surgery due to a sports injury. Since then I have completed my rehab and have been cleared by my doctor. Somewhere I thought I read that if I have my exam more than six months after my surgery I do not need a waiver. I was hoping to wait till Sept. 1 for my exam but have already received my letter to schedule an appointment. What is the best approach? Should I schedule it ASAP and begin the process of a waiver or should I try to postpone my appointment?
