    I was just looking at my status on the DoDMERB site and saw this:

    "Current Medical Status 456: Pending Waiver Submission/Review

    Code: D226.90

    Description: Implants - silastic/other devices correcting orthopedic abnormalities"

    I'm wondering if I need to do anything for this waiver submission/review? Do I need to go to my surgeon and ask him to write a letter telling them that it is fine either way and I won't even have the implant after march?

    You should get a letter in the mail from DODMERB if they need any additional remedials done. Otherwise, I assume everything is "under review"

    My DS was DQ'd for spondylolythesis and was subsequently submitted for waiver review. He got a "released for military" letter from the doctor, and sent that along with a personal statement to DoDMERB. Not sure if it helped or not, but he did get a waiver from both USNA and USAFA! :)

    I recieved a letter from DoDMERB today saying I could send any information that I thought would help get a waiver (something along those lines). Will contact my surgeon about it and get it done.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hey Daw,
    My son was DQed for same reason. His letter from DODMERB said "Spondylolysis, history of".

    Any chance I can get more information from you?
