My daughter was awarded a 4 year ROTC scholarship, and had to enlist in the National Guard as soon as she accepted the scholarship. During her first semester, she was running as part of her required PT, and she rolled her ankle before she passed her PFT running test, so she hasn't passed all of her requirements yet. She blows through the other physical requirements with ease, but was about 45 seconds too slow when she got hurt. She has a high ankle sprain with some ligament damage. They gave her a deferral from passing her physical, while she went to physical therapy, but they want her to be able to pass the PFT by the end of March. Now the doctor (who is a very well respected foot/ankle specialist) said that he thinks she isn't healing completely, and he wants to do surgery to brace the two bones and increase her range of motion, and he thinks she would recover completely in a month while in a walking boot, and she should be able to pass the physical within two months with no future concerns about the ankle whatsoever. He is also willing to talk to the MEPS doctor and whoever else has any questions about it, since he knows how important it is to my daughter. She is worried that they will yank her ROTC scholarship, discharge her, and make her pay back everything they have spent on her tuition, dorm, and meals. She really likes ROTC, and the NG, and she doesn't want to get discharged. She has never failed at anything she has tried before, and said she is even willing to extend her obligation by a year or two if they will give her a chance to heal up and pass the PFT. What are her options at this point, what should she do, and what is likely to happen to her?
