Having joined the Air Force (twice) I know first hand recruiters are not always the best source for this infomation. I had a surgery on my face in 1990 and when I went to join the first time in 1992, my recruiter just threw up his hands when I was turned down. Luckily, my doctor knew someone at the Surgeon General's office and I was able to get a waiver. One thing I have learned in 12 years of military...just about EVERYTHING is waiverable. First, find where it is written, that is not allowing your condition. In that regulation, there should be a "waiver authority". Most regulations are searchable on the internet. Recruiters are good people, but most take the job to get out of a job they didn't like and/or get stationed somewhere they desire. They are not looking out for your best interests no matter what they tell you. I am not telling you the military is a bad choice. The military has been very good to me, but the only person who is going to look out for you is YOU.

go and talk to a recruiter - they are the ones who know and are current on regulations.
