I need some advice. It is almost the end of February and we just found out that son may have a hernia -- need to get confirmation from surgeon. He had his DoDMERB physical 4 months ago and no hernia was identified. He is still awtg admission decisions from the acadamies. His current DoDMERB medical status is disqualified for an unrelated issue but he is working through it and is hopeful a waiver would be granted. The question is, if the hernia is confirmed, should he have surgery right away? Recovery is 4 weeks, so he could be cleared by early April if no complications. Or does this issue, and its timing, leave him disqualified for no chance of a waiver?
