Chronic autoimmune illnesses- will I be able to make it through medical school?
Hello everyone, I've read through all of the "chronic illness" posts and I was hoping that by starting a new one I could meet med students, residents and doctors who may be living with conditions similar to my own and who can give me inside advice on if this will be doable for me. I am premed at one of the top 5 universities in the world. I was also diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases (Hashimoto's thyroiditis, gastritis and pernicious anemia as well as some other issues that I'm...

I wasn't really thinking about this at firs, but I'm wondering if this is going to be a problem now. I was planning on using the same PS as my MD apps, but just deleting some of it to match the character count. Is this ok?? I am interested in going for an MD residency even if I go to DO school. My PS talks about a family member having an autoimmune disease. Should have somehting specific about DO physicians in there? Right now I just use the word physician. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Failed classes due to illness. Will ADEA AADSAS understand?
Okay so during freshman year I got struck with an autoimmune disease and was hospitalized the week of finals for about a month and a half. I ended up failing all 3 classes I took that quarter (well, because I didn't take the final), but I returned a year later after I had fully recovered from my illness and killed it in those classes; however, by the time I returned, my school told me that it was too late to file for an "Incomplete" in those classes. I know I should have filed for an... Failed classes due to illness. Will ADEA AADSAS understand? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

just a question
my 15 daughter developed a nasal obstruction, had septoplasty and the doctor reported that my daughter had the worst adhesions he had ever seen. Within 2 months the adhesions were back, she developed a saddle nose, and she was snoring again. The lining of her nose is lined with sores and bleeds everyday, and she coughs all of the time. My daughter was sent to a Rhinologist who took one look at the lining, said it was allergies and she needed reconstruction. We were sent down the hall to plastics where the doctor took one look at her nose and said that he felt like she had a vasculitis called Wegeners Granulomatosis. She we...
