    Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    All, Thanks so much for all the help thus far. This forum has been invaluable. An admin LT in the med squadron suggested that I get proof of my aneurysm from the VA and use it to get recalled to active duty for an MEB with them. I'm interested in the group's thoughts on that. If (and it's...

    Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    Hi Ron's, Here's another question. I'm almost certainly on a profile limiting me to a waist measurement only PT test for the rest of my life. They may or may not decide to waive this condition for the purpose of deployability. Is the PT profile enough to get retired on? Or is the...

    Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    Thanks other ron, that matches my math. And if I understand correctly, that doesn't change just because I'm a reservist right? To be clear I'm currently on long term orders greater than 31 days and I'm operating under the assumption that I'll have a favorable LOD determination.

    Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

    Thanks Ron! One question, is this condition definitely going to a PEB? My flight doc (an ophthalmologist) send to not be terribly concerned deployability-wise. Is the only way to secure a PEB and eventual retirement to be to get him and his fellow med group doctors to agree I'm never...

    Bicuspid valve and 4.4cm aortic aneurysm

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. I've got a thoracic aortic aneurysm at 4.5 on the CT, 4.7 on the echo. I guess I'm starting the MEB process. Any idea if this is generally considered disqualifying? The cardilogists think I shouldn't deploy. I'm a mobility pilot, so I generally am expected...

    Looking for info on PEB unfitting conditions

    Hello! I'm new to the forum, so excuse me if this is asked elsewhere. I was recently diagnosed with a heart condition that's listed at 60% in the VASRD. I'm a drilling reservist in the AF with 13 yrs active time, and it looks like I'll be starting the PEB process. I'm trying to find out the...
