Very Frustrated, advice appreciated

I have been working with a recruiting office since this summer. Had to wait until October to receive clearance for my lasik surgery. So, come October and my recruiter has left for OCS. Now assigned to a new recruiter and it is difficult to get anything done. I had back surgery for a herniated disk in 2008. No therapy afterwards, etc. and I was cleared. It is taking forever to find out if I am even eligible to test. Apparently my records are being sent between MEPS offices and one doctor has said ok, but still waiting to hear back from another. I am not sure if this is normal process-for this to take so long. Also, I can't even test yet, until the doctors say ok???? Is this right? I will be 35 in December and am running out of time here. Any advice appreciated.

That's correct they won't let

That's correct they won't let you test before getting cleared. But couple questions: did u sign a medical form called a 2807? That's the form needed to send up to get what is called a prescreen done on you. If you didn't then nothing is being done on you. Second did you do finger prints for them?
