Fiance / High Blood pressure

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well,my fiance has been delaying calling for his medical because of high blood pressure problems, He has been on medication for a couple months now, Its starting to come down but its still a little high. He has all his shots, everything is in order and his Doctors are gonna order a 24 hour moniter but only because he has insisted on it.

Today after reading the posts about blood pressure not being a problem at the London Embassy he is going to go ahead and call for his medical appt in London. This has been such a nerve wracking time for us, Weve been waiting a long time :(

I think alot of his blood pressure problems are just from anxiety about going to the Drs because when he takes his readings at his moms house, they are much much better.

Do you have any recommendations about what we should do at this point? We are both at our wits end.

Blood Pressure is a major risk for Denial of the medical?

Everyone's BP is high during a medical examination. I am a nurse trust me, I know about this. It would be very odd to see a medical denied due to high blood pressure.

I am so glad to hear this TY. We had been told that he would have a hard time over high blood pressure, I guess we have worried for nothing.

He called and made his appointment for his medical.. Now Im curious about the process after the medical,,, how long it takes for the interview etc, Guess I will scour the forums for info on that.

You should receive your Interview date before you do your medical. You have a certain amount of days before your interview to get your medical done. Your thinking backwards on this issue. Check your embassy/consulate guidelines in the foreign country to find out the minimum number of days the medical has to be done before the interview.

I am confused..

Directly off the London Embassy website it says,,,,,

The medical examination must take place before the visa interview. The Embassy will not schedule the interview until they have received the results of the medical examination.

Everyone's BP is high during a medical examination. I am a nurse trust me, I know about this.
Si, man. In fact, the common term for it is "white-coat hypertension" -- referring to the stress of being around docs & others who wear white coats.

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Finally the whole medical thing is complete. Now were waiting for the Last form concerning my fiance's blood pressure to be filled out on Tuesday the 12th and then waiting on the London Medical to forward the reports to the Embassy.I hope the interview dont take to long to be set up, Im getting very impatient :( It has been a year long process for us.
