    So I went to a civilian Dr for my exams...

    I have 2 scars on my arms about 2 inches long and 1/2 cm thick. That are healed and do not cause any problems whatsoever.

    I also have a hemorrhoid apparently a very small one which I did not know I had. And on my application I said I had them in the past but I did not have them anymore... But the Dr stated that I had one.

    Do I have to worry about not getting accepted because of these 2 problems?

    My son has a scar from surgery that is longer than 2 inches and it was not a problem at all--currently at the AFA. DoDMERB wanted to know about the surgery itself, but the scar was not an issue. I have no clue about hemorrhoids.

    These are likely not major hurdles to overcome. Can't say with 100% certainty, but my best guess is that you will not run into any problems.

    Well I got my medical back and they didnt seem to mind those issues but I was put on remidial for my urinalysis?

    I have never done drugs or anything bad but I remember this happening once before in NROTC and it was because of to much protein in my system. I am guessing it is the same problem as when I was with NROTC. But no one told me why I failed it. Is there a way to find out?

    The urine test is not for drugs.

    Try to avoid strenuous exercise for 2-3 days prior to your remedial test to avoid the excess protein that can sometimes cause the test results to be skewed.

    Well I did it today and the nurse said I was negative for everything including protein so I guess I did fine this time?
