The request was successful.

Dear Royal Navy,
I have just learned that I might not be able to join the royal navy due to my Scheuremann's disease. This is due to the fact that I have a surgery scheduled at the end of this year, and it's confusing that the fact that I can go into the navy with Scheuremann's disease, but if I get spinal surgery to treat the condition, I will be barred from entry.

What I am trying to request is to see if there is still a way to join the Royal Navy if I have a spinal surgery for Scheuremann's disease.

Yours faithfully,
Kamil.
