Absolutely gutted lads, after all this time looking forward to the lifestyle of the Marine and protecting my country, and the pride i would gain for myself.

After a chat with a physio as well as the pediatrician that did my knee op, my knee (Osteochondritus dissecans) isn't getting better after an operation 3 years ago, i am an unfortunate person, luck isn't always with me, my knee will never be 100%, i struggle to run now. This disease affects 1 in 25,000 people. It would be me :(.

Still going to stay active on these forums.

My full 100% respect goes out to all you guys who are marines and who are to become marines in the future. Never give up! Stick at it lads.

Will be active as much as possible.

Can't currently explain how gutted i am :/

Head up pal. I can't imagine what you must be feeling. That is such bad luck.

Know exactly how ya feel mate, 'disease' I have affects 1 in 100,000.

It's heartbreaking, and has sent me a bit of the rails, but life is what you make of it. It's all about picking yourself up and moving on.

Good luck.

I'm sorry to hear this, bad things always happen, and to have high hopes and a successful career in mind shattering before you must be heartbreaking and downright depressing.

Just think of what a Royal Marine Commando would do if he was in this situation.

Still keeping me head up, it's not the end of the world, although it feels like it is.

All the best of luck to you lads (Y)!

Wouldn't wish a dream shattered on my worst enemy.

Gutted for you Pal.

Best of luck in whatever you choose to do next.

Hopefully you could consider a career in the engineers or something along the lines?

All the best...

How about trying for a different regiment in the Navy? Or something like the Intelligence Corps in the Army? There must be something you can do in the military that doesn't require that much running.

Your dream might only be temporarily over, dont forget you can apply upto the age of 32, i'm unsure how old you are, but im guessing your not that old. I had osteochondritis when i was yourger but was fortunate enough for it to clear up without surgery. Have you been told it will be with you forever? If not it may take a few years, but keep your head up and mind on the goal and you will eventually get there, and it will make getting your green beret mean that much more to you from what you have been through. Until then all the support you need is here. Don't ever give up.

Unlucky mate, i would be gutted. I guess if it was me i would be on my backup option: a fulltime pornstar. You got anything else you *text deleted* do? hope it does heal before your 32.

Best of luck,
Luke
