I went to see the audiologist friday (4 Jan 08) for my hearing test and he failed my left ear for some frequency loss. He told me he would withhold my test results until I saw a ear, nose and throat doctor. I went and and saw the ENT today and he diagnosed me with otosclerosis and a 25-30% hearing loss in my left ear. I go back to the ENT on Thursday for a more comprehensive hearing test and further diagnosis. He told me upfront today that surgery would be the best option for the route i was going (ROTC). My question is that will this much of a hearing loss and the otosclerosis be a disqualifier for DODMERB? Or can the surgery waive that? Help me out please.
