Question: I had a slenectomy when i was 4 due to hereditary spherocytosis is there hope for a medical waiver? I was 4 and i was diagnosed with the illness. But i've never taken medication or anything after my surgery, not even a check up. Is there still a chance the Army will grant my waiver?

Answer: They should, I hate to sound like a recorder BUT, you really need to ask your recruiter. Good luck & God Bless for wanting to serve.
