My DS was DQed for the following two reasons: D121.80 Chronic otitis media, history of after the 13th birthday D122.20 Ear drum surgery during the preceding 180 days The D121.80 was caused by a defect in the ear canal (a kind of pot hole), and that was repaired surgically back in April. The surgery is what caused the D122.20. FYI the surgery was a complete success! It has now been over 180 days, can the D122.20 be removed? Does he simply contact the DODMERB to have it removed? He is still in the "Pending Waiver Submission/Review" status with AROTC for the 2012 cycle, and has been this way for over two months now. He is hoping that getting one of the DQs removed may help in the whole process at least.
