Im beyond nervous of the coming events! Time to hit the jog / swimming pool / crossfit gym!

I know we have to get a blood sample drawn at BMQ. Does anyone know what exactly is being tested for at St. Jean? I passed my medical (even though we didn't get blood drawn for that) and I have no medical conditions that I know of. I'm just really paranoid about them finding something I don't even know I have. If anyone who was just at BMQ can let me know what they are testing for, and if there is any chance people could end up being medically released from the CAF as a result of this test, that would be appreciated.

So,  i have a "small" injury on my big toe. To make a long story short my big toenail is dead and will need to come off. I did half the job and the doctor will cut the rest of the cuticle on Wednesday. I'm due to go to BMQ in September. Now i've been able to jog on it and i'm sure i'll be okay in a few days when the new nail comes in but should i inform them? It says it takes 6 months to a year to grow back completely.

Any help will be appreciated.

Did your doctor say you will be fit for duty by September?

See...i don't have to have it cut off entirely. I can wait until the new nail comes up before anything. It was just annoying that everytime it got under my sock itd give me a jolt. No pain just a argh. I've read up on it and people jog after having it removed so i'm 99.9% sure i'll be fine.

Thanks.

PS...this isn't as severe as a rolled ankle or a ruptured spleen. Thanks.

Yep.  I wouldn't worry too much.  I had both toenails removed...in Afghanistan.

If you miss a certain amount of time....i believe 48h of training you will be recoursed. Could be different for basic but those are pretty standard times for the courses I have done in the past.

What will happen is you will be put on light duties until you are better and then at some point you will join another course

If you have a dental issue that interferes with your training, you could be removed from your platoon and re-coursed after the issue is resolved.  Recourse means moved into a *holding platoon* with ours who are on a delay in training for a variety of reasons.  Once you are fit again, you'd be placed back into a new platoon and carry on.

Just be aware, if you miss X amount of training or classes, this could also be a cause for recourse, so if possible at all it is much better to go to BMQ as fit as possible.  What might be an agitation now could escalate to the level it negatively affects your performance, for example, during field training, or firing the C7 on the range.  It could be something as simple and marching and doing drill that increases the discomfort, only you will know when you get there how much this will (potentially) impact your ability to do the training with the state your dental fitness is now.

You've been at basic for 19 days and you're at risk of being re-coursed for missed PT? Was the missed PT caused by the sickness you mentioned above? Seems a bit strange.

It really depends how sick you are. If you just feel shitty then you could ignore it and push yourself through being sick and stay on course. People have pushed through a hell of a lot harder courses being in a much worse place than having a sore throat.  On the other hand depending how sick you are you could really mess yourself up such as if it develops in to pneumonia.

Lastly you could look to some witchcraft. I'll chase a double dose of bucklys and nyquil with a jagerbomb. Seems to do the trick for me, I don't advise it if your handling weapons, or working. Or interacting with people really.

I had blisters on feet (f'in armory can't measure for crud) and had to miss the obstacle course & 2.2 mile ruck sack march. So that counts as 4 missed PT's. I only have 9 so i already blew through half my "sick days"...with 70+ days to go...i can't eff up much.
