Has anyone ever had first hand experience with, or known anyone with a congenital condition known as a UPJ obstruction? I had laparoscopic surgery to rectify that issue in college a couple of years ago. It's technically an automatic DQ from all branches of the military but on this website ( http://www.asams.org/guidelines/Completed/NEW Congenital Urinary Anomalies.htm ), under Congenital Obstruction of the Ureteropelvic Junction, it says there has been at least some success with waiver applicants. Luckily I wasn't diagnosed with an underlying condition, otherwise I'm almost positive the military would be a definitive "no". It came about in college during a cross country because of excessive hydration (The Sonoran desert can do that to you during the Fall). Unfortunately the Navy hasn't published any of their waiver information for this particular condition as I'm sure it's not a very common issue among SNA/SNFO applicants or any other designation for that matter. But, I figured I would ask anyways in the off chance somebody has encountered a similar dilemma.
