Hi, I just dropped my AOS package that includes my i-485 and medical examination today (Nov 27) at Fedex. What I'm concern now is my medical exam expires Nov 29 (60 days) and my question is when is considered the date I file my application? Is it when I drop it off at Fedex or when USCIS receive it? Please help as I don't want my application to be denied because of this error!
I couldn't find a specific thread with this topic, so perhaps this could be the venue for all things SLEC Medical Exam-related in 2019. If I missed a link or forum that makes this redundant, maybe y'all can transfer my post. 😊 Anyway, I know I'm still some ways off from doing this process but I figured I'd gather information early on to be better prepared. I have a couple of questions about the medical exam: 1. SLEC website says we can bring x-rays from the past 3 months. Will doing this render the x-ray procedure unnecessary on Day 1 of the medical exam? 2. The whole "sputum scare" that some people are paranoid about. As in, I'm getting the impression that if they find the tiniest blurry thing on the x-ray it could delay or complicate the process. Anyone have any thoughts or experiences regarding this? How do you make sure you don't get such problems (besides not having some sort of respiratory illness on that day)? Because some have "prepared" in advance for their medical, as in proper diet and exercise, etc. I don't know how important all that really is. I know, I know. It's really a personal choice. 😂 But I'm curious what everyone thinks anyways. 3. This is more personal: I got into a car accident in 2008 and as a result have had surgical procedures done for broken bones and scars. I have a particularly prominent scar on my forehead. When I was applying for my passport they asked for medical records for it, but I had none, and they let it go anyway. So I figured it could be relevant enough. SLEC site says: "Medical certificate regarding a previously-treated or currently managed clinically significant illness...surgical procedure done..." Except mine really wasn't an illness. I wonder, should I present medical records of this event on the exam? Maybe call St. Luke's to ask? 4. That thing about people waiting in line at 4 am on Day 1... I found a 2018 post wherein some of you guys said it isn't really necessary. How about more recently, I wonder? I hope y'all would excuse me for having a ton of questions all the time. I tend to overthink. I'd appreciate any input. Thanks in advance!
