  • Flight physical in two days and need anwsers or info on a embarrsing and un-timley occurance.

    I have a class 4 flight physical scheduled in two days and have a prolapsed hemorrhoid (I think that's the technical term). Will that disqualify me from certification??? Any info or answers are very much appreciated.

    Insert a Preparation-H suppository before the physical. You should be good to go.

    I would think the answer is no. Many soldiers get them from sitting down (e.g. tanks, vehicles) and as long as it is not severe or requires surgery; the condition should not matter. Take care of yourself and dont strain.

      ok, that's a huge weight lifted. Thank you for the response and advice sir.

        The regulation doesn't state anything specific about hemorrhoids and flight status EXCEPT for the following:

        "d. History of gastrointestinal bleeding [is a disqualification]. This excludes minor bleeding from hemorrhoids or acute rectal fissure. (See
        APLs, Peptic Ulcer Disease.)"

        See AR 40-501-1 for more information, but I would suspect that Cityslicker is absolutely correct on this.
