Active Military Fiance with Latent Tuberculosis

Recommended Posts

Hi. My Fiance and I have been engaged  for quite a while and we felt that it's already time to tie the knot. When I went to St.Luke's for the medical exams, I was diagnosed with Latent Tuberculosis or TB class 2. I have a dextroscoliosis reason for them to suspect that I have a water or thickening of the walls of my lungs. They made me do an ultrasound, sputum and skin test. Ultrasound and sputum came back negative but the skin test was positive. The blister on my arm was read as 16mm. The doctor gave me meds for 4 months but he is already leaving for another deployment in 2 months. Both of us were so devastated. Did anybody experienced their fiance having a latent tuberculosis and got an approval to get married?

I have seen plenty of people get approval, obviously once the medical issue is addressed.
