  • medical exam question

    I have my medical tomorrow and I have a light cough that I have developed within the last week or so. I tend to cough in the morning right when I wake up then it goes away as the day goes on.. I think it's from the pollen in the trees around here. Anyone ever gone into a medical exam with a cold or cough and still passed? This is my last step before I'm hired, would hate to get DQ'd...Thanks.

    Being sick with a "normal" type cold etc is nothing to worry about

        Normally, we refer medical questions to the physicians. Based on your post though, I don't see any problems.

          You haven't taken any recent trips to Liberia or anything have you?

            Everything went well, even the doctor had a cough. He assured me that he didn't have ebola. He didn't tell me if I passed or not, he just said the agency would let me know. He did look at my file at the end and he said, "you should be fine, looks good from here." Still nervously waiting for a call or email...

                  I went to the police academy at 21 and started with my first agency at 22. I don't know whether to envy you or pitty you. I can tell you right now you will get sh*t for being young from your coworkers and the criminals. Do not try to overcompensate with a tough guy approach (trust me on this one). Keep your mouth shut in the academy and with your training officer.

                  Good luck to you and stay safe.

                    I started working as a Correctional Officer in a maximum security prison when I was just 21. I did however look 21 or maybe a bit older......but even at that age trying to supervise and order very mature killers around was difficult

                      I'm 31 and my Chief still asks if I'm old enough to drive.
                      The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                      I Am the Sheepdog.

                      that we are all that stands between
                      the monsters and the weak." - Michael Marks

                          I wasn't sure if I pitied you or envied you. I now know I envy you. I remember being so eager and excited before I began my career. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

                          Stay safe.
