    Hey everyone,

    I was notified by my RC that I had two DQ conditions—GERD with complications and choledochocyst—that are preventing me from obtaining a medical waiver. I had already sent in a doctor's letter telling them that I already saw a specialist in 2013 and that I was treated successfully. Also, my doctor noted in the letter that I've had no related problems ever since I went through surgery to remove the cyst when I was one years old.

    I'm just wondering why a requested waiver for me was denied based on these DQ conditions, given that they received my doctor's letter. I also don't see how these DQ conditions will have any impact on me today or on my ability to serve in the future.

    I'm hoping for some insight and advice as to what I should do next...

    Thanks!
