pulmonary stenosis

I was diagnosed with mild pulmonary stenosis about 8 years ago. I am cleared for all activity and have no restrictions at all. Is the condition progressive? I was never told it was.

I want to join the Army but fear rejection during the medical exam. Is there anything that helps to "lighten" the effects of pulmonary stenosis ? i want to be very well informed when I go.

Thanks.

Re: pulmonary stenosis

I'm sorry, I don't really know the answer to your question, but I know you can go to the army website and chat with a recruiter - or pick up your local phone book and call a recruiter. You could explain the issue to them and find out what the requirements would be.
