My DS broke his leg wrestling last year and has a steel plate in his leg. He has passed DODMERB and is medically qualified. He has no issues with the plate but his Orthopedic mentioned that he could take it out and recovery would only be 2 weeks. He made it sound like it was a very simple process and nothing to worry about. Has anyone had experience with this and would this possibly medically disqualify my DS this year? Would we need to contact DODMERB for clarification or is this something that needs to go the the Academy/ROTC contacts? If it is not an issue we prefer to have it removed. I know some people end up having issues later down the road when it is left in and if we can avoid that we prefer to.
