    my son was seen at age 9 for a hip injury.  They suspected a subluxation but he was always able to walk on it. All tests were negative ( X-ray and mri), but they are saying it is a pdq. He is going to meps in March but they are not giving him much hope.  Thoughts?  I was a little over protective at the time as my husband was in Afghanistan so I took him in.

    Your son needs to round up the relevant medical records and bring those with him to MEPS. If all tests were negative and he hasn't had any issues since then, there shouldn't be an issue. He may get DQ'd, but his recruiter can always submit for a medical waiver.

    Thank you so much. One dr wrote possible subluxation but another said there’s no way he was walking on a dislocated or subluxated hip. Initial diagnosis was a pulled muscle.

    Something else (and this is water under the bridge at this point) is that your son should not be listing things on his medical history that were not officially diagnosed by a doctor. In these forums, we see a lot of people that get DQ'd because they listed something on their medical hx that they never acutally had. They were simply told by Mom or Aunt Susie that they had this condition.
