RetNavyHM My son is a high school senior and applied for 4 year Navy R.O.T.C. scholarship. He is awaiting a decision from the selection board. He is a varsity wrestler and fractured his ulna and radius at wrestling practice. He underwent surgery, open reduction internal fixation a couple of days ago so he now has a plates and screws. The orthopedist recommended this procedure instead of just casting the arm. The orthopedist said he would be in a splint for 2 months, then he could go back to wrestling with his team. He said he would take the hardware out in six months. This time frame puts my son getting the hardware out around May 1st. If my son receives a NROTC scholarship, what problems are we likely to run into? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
