Possibility of problem at medical exam

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I are currently waiting for NVC to send our application to the Manila US Embassy.. Meanwhile we are busy preparing for the requirements for the interview and I just have a few concerns on the medical requirements...

I have been diagnosed 8 years ago of minimal PTB and undergone the required medication.. Just this month I went to a routine check-up but to a different doctor.. It seems that my previous illness leaves a scar on my lungs seen through x-rays (but have to be verified if they are really scars or signs of activity of the previous illness). SInce I have lost already all old medical records showing my treatment went well, and my present doctor is saying that the illness has possibility to recur I am getting worried because if things go well, the USE interview can be in one or two months from now..

Has anybody here experienced problems with their medical exams. What are the worst scenarios? What do they ask during medical examinations? Should I tell them about my previous illness?

I'm getting so anxious it's stressful just thinking about it.. My bf and I are really excited already that we'll be together soon.

What I'm doing right now is try to ensure what really is my medical state by going through further medical tests prior to the interview just to prepare myself...

Thanks so much..

I suggest you take your St. Lukes medical as soon as you can. Gives you time to ake care of any problems that may pop up from your past medical problems. You HAVE to inform them about your prior problems. You'll be OK as long as you are no longer contagious. My wife and anak did the St. Lukes medical 1 11/2 month before their embassy interview.

You can use your NOA2 approval notice to get in.

for sure you will go under sputum test that takes 2 months to get the result.. if you already have the mnl case number, i suggest take an early medical exam at SLEC...just bring your mnl case number, passport, photo and medical fee...goodluck...

[/font][/size] Thanks so much for the replies.. I've gone to medical and jsut waiting for the results. And whatever it is I'm already preparing for the requirements for my visa interview on Jan 20... I just have another question.. In answering Form DS-156, for the question, "Have you ever been afflicted with a communicable disease of public health significance or a dangerous physical or mental disorder, or ever been a drug abuser or addict?", do I put YES because I have had minimal PTB 8 years ago? Woul dthis pose another problem on the interview? I hope to hear from those who have gone ahead and experienced the same dilemma.. Thanks so much..
