  • manmed-p-117 clarification

    Thanks in advance for you time,

    500 yard Swim: 8:50
    Push Ups: 80
    Sit Ups: 86
    Pull Ups: 18
    1.5 mile Run: 9:10
    3.1 mile run: 19:45

    I have a question about the waiver regarding kidney stones. manmed-p-117 reads in section 15-47 "(13) Current or history of urolithiasis (592) within
    the preceding 12 months is disqualifying. Recurrent calculus, nephrocalcinosis, or bilateral renal calculi at any time is disqualifying."

    I had a single 5.5mm kidney stone removed in August 2016, only one I've ever had. Dr. said he doesn't think I'll ever get another one.

    If I wait until September of 2017 will I need a waiver? Or because it's been a year I won't need it. The language is confusing me. Will my above PST scores help my case?

    (I've only been formally training for the PST for 3 weeks, otherwise I play a ton of sports. I'm hoping to shrink my swim by a full minute & run by 30 seconds!)

    Thanks for your time.

    you never had a kidney stone?

      I had one stone in Aug of 2016. My question is, will I need a waiver once the one year wait is up?

        Best option of finding out is to talk to a recruiter and talk to a few and try to match up their answers.
