Hello, I've been recruited to USMA to play a sport. I have already received my Congressional nomination and have been approved with a reserved cadetship and appointment awaiting medical. However, I have a herniated/bulging disc which has been causing me problems and surgery has been recommended. I am looking at having a laminotomy/discectomy procedure that would put me out for 6-8 weeks. After which I would be 100% again 3 months prior to beast. Can anyone tell me if this surgery would affect or dq my appointment or should I just tough it out and move forward with no surgery? All help greatly appreciated!
