I know you guys are not ame (well maybe some) but I had a question to see if anyone could give me a little insight.

About 11-12 years ago I had to have a titanium rod put in to my femur due to a malignant bone tumor.

The cancer has been cleared and i have full use and range of motion of the leg. Have recieved a third class with no problems. Would my condition disqualify me or make it difficult to get the first class?

any info would really help to ease my mind.
