So I do the new physical, it wasn’t painless but ended up being less of hassle than first thought. My new MMC has been duly issued with just a hiccup.
My question stems from the ‘waiver’ letter provided by NMC, ‘waiving’ my medical conditions. It’s a hit list. Kidney Stones are included with no follow up. Nasal allergies is another with an added caution on the use of antihistamines 24 hours before working on the credential. These are easy to deal with. The stickler for me is sleep apnea. The deal breaker being 'Waiver becomes invalid for non-compliance with CPAP use, [U][B]OR IF DAYTIME SLEEPINESS DEVELOPS[/B][/U] (caps/underscore are mine)
It ain’t like ANY medical condition is static and in a vacuum - shit happens. Words mean things though and should SOMETHING change, the language doesn’t leave me a lot of sea room TO FIX IT. I feel like I’m being set up for failure. I’m mean, why even SEE a doctor if NMC is gonna jam me up, you know?
I will be corresponding with the Death Star in the hopes of finding a NAME I can put on the record as a reference of how to deal with this WITHOUT some summary MMC invalidation occurring. I’ll post with my results.
Anyone had any experience with this?
