Are you told your medical results on the day of the medical?

I have my medical on Monday (eek!) so would be grateful of any insider knowledge/ tips but was specifically wondering whether you are told your 'results' on the day?

I am assuming it should be all very straightforward as the tests aren't anything i'm particularly concerned about but are you given the results of such tests and a general 'you've passed' then and there, or is it at the embassy?

I also have a bit of a complicated medical genetic condition (very very specialised and rare condition which doesn't affect my day to day health whatsoever or really have any impact on me at all) is this likely to be an issue? My only concern is that while I have a specialist professor who is familiar with the condition no other Dr (any of my GPs, medical friends, my Surgeon etc) have even heard of it so I doubt the Dr doing the test will have. I completely forget I have it so it only just occurred to me that it could be an issue.

hello!

At least in Mexico (Pretty sure it is the same everywhere) You are not told the results, they either give them to you in a sealed envelope to take with you to the interview or send directly to the consulate. If you open the sealed envelope the results will no be valid and you will need to do your medical again delaying your process.

They take a blood sample and a Chest Xray (looking for TB) . They also make you undress completely. :oops:

I forgot to add, they will ask a bunch of questions: Have you ever been pregnant? Any abortions, Any surgeries? Diabetes, any contagious disease? Cancer? and so on...

London answer--

Your results are not even available on the day because they send the bloodwork off to the lab. If there is any observable issue like high blood pressure, they have sent people back to their GP to get it checked out/monitored. Some GPs write a report back saying they have data suggesting that the blood pressure has always been normal and they feel there is no cause for concern. So in that instance you would know on the day if there was an issue needing further information.

With your rare medical condition, if you self-report it then the doctor will most likely request that your GP or specialist write a report describing it...date of onset, medications or not, prognosis, etc.

You will not get a copy of the medical report. You will be given a photocopy of the vaccination form only. The medical report looks like this http://photos.state.gov/libraries/vietnam/8621/pdf-forms/DS-2053.pdf and is sent by courier to the embassy when the lab work comes back (3-4 days).

Thank you so much! That link with the medical report document was extremely helpful and the condition would not come up at all in answering those questions.

I will get the professor to write an explanation and to assure the Dr that it does not effect my health whatsoever and that I am not taking any medication for it etc just to be completely sure!

Thank you again. I know there's nothing to be worried about but every aspect of the K1 process gets me so worked up!

I was told everything was fine and the same from the xray guy. The xrays are double checked and any blood work takes a couple days, everyone is tested for syphilis I believe and the rest depends on police certificate, questionnaire and the doctors recommendations.

So you will hopefully be given a good indication on the day. They will not follow up with you unless there are issues.

In relation to any pre-existing condition a report from your doctor is needed, setting out treatment and being monitored etc. If you have something like diabetes they will also want a copy of your most recent blood tests.
