Question Medical screening at bootcamp

What goes into the medical screening at bootcamp?
I'm worried about one thing.
I had my tonsils removed, but they grew back. My recruiter said don't even bother putting that on my medical history because it's pointless if they grew back, but now I'm questioning what if they didn't grow back lol? A doctor told me it looked tonsily in there, and the lady at Meps said open wide and didn't day anything about tonsils not being in there, but now I'm panicking that they're going to check for tonsils and they'll be gone and I'll get sent home just because I listened to my recruiter lol

sweetmtn will become famous soon enough

If you had your tonsils out and is documented by a doctor in your past, you havent lied. Personally I have never heard of them growing back, I would just make sure you have that documentation that says they were removed.
