DS will be competing for an appointment to enter a SA in 2016, but I want to start working on this now if it's going to be a problem... DS had a series of sinus and ear infections when he was young (<10 years old). Finally determined the issue was with his maxillary crest - it was "bent" to one side, effectively closing that sinus. Physician's guess is that DS's nose rested against my spine in utero. He had a septoplasty/turbinectomy/crest repair when he was 14 (couldn't do it earlier, needed to give his facial bones time to grow). He has had no issues since the surgery - not a single sinus or ear infection. Plus, as a result of being able to breathe more efficiently, he lost 40 pounds in the 6 months following surgery, which has greatly contributed to his physical fitness. DS is currently PADI certified - no issues with pressure or anything of that nature. Will the DoDMERB be interested in this history? Should I be working to obtain the medical records related to this? We no longer have that health insurance (Kaiser Permanente), so requesting those records may take some time and I'd like to be prepared. Thank you!
