We just got notification yesterday that my son does not need a waiver afterall!! His portal shows qualified now!! We thought he had a possible hernia after his DoDMERB physical and we went ahead and scheduled the appt with the surgeon. The surgeon did not find a hernia and did not recommend surgery. He wrote up his findings, we faxed them in, and got notice yesterday there was not even a waiver needed!! So thrilled to be done with this process!! Good luck to everyone still waiting!!
