I am working on my BSN and would like to join the Air Force once I'm done. I had a total thyroidectomy and it is controlled with synthroid. I was told today by a recruiter that you can't be on any meds for an entire year before you join and that is just impossible for me. Do you know of anyone who has received a waiver for this and is this info exactly accurate? She did not seem to sure of herself on some of her answers. Thanks for any information you may have. I was very disappointed when she told me this.
