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.
