Customer Question

I have been told ill likely get a permanent p2 profile for my asthma in the guard. My doctor says I can't wear a pro-mask, and under a particular AR it says this is grounds for a medical discharge. Is this the army blatantly ignoring this recommendation? Thanks.

Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.

Can you tell me, have you requested a MEB already?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No, I havent't. I have a phone appointment with the state surgeon on Wednesday. I was told by his secretary that somebody was already working on creating a p2 profile for me, which also seems premature. Both my pulmonologist as well as my ENT have written letters expressing the seriousness of my asthma.

Oh no you've been an excellent help, I was just wondering if this new information was of any significance.

Hi, I am a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
