    I had an ear operation ten years ago for removal of cholesteatoma and hearing bone in cholesteatoma has reoccurred and recent hearing test shows I have a slight hearing hearing loss acceptablility. The other ear is perfect. I have been active, including playing football and all types of water sports without any difficutly whatsoever. I see that is disqualifying, but is waiverable?

    Thank you,

    A history of cholesteoma is a disqualification and waivers are difficult to obtain. Since you’ve had a reoccurrence of the cholesteoma I would have to say that your chances are very slim.

    Now just know that I've been wrong before when it comes to waivers, so I would definitely continue your application process, because you never know what will happen.
