Hi there, I just wanted to follow up on your response to my review. I appreciate the in depth response and the fact that you take great pride in your approach. I think on reflection that the problem is actually in the way the question on the form is phrased. Perhaps it should be "Have you had a lung condition that could affect your diving." This would have avoided the entire scenario. I subsequently went diving in Australia, and I'm actually so glad I had this learning experience, as I knew to put "no" in that box this time - and a doctor in Australia would have been MUCH more expensie. There was a girl on board the boat with me there, who was in tears as she was having exactly the same problem , having noted an irrelevant prior lung condition - except in her case the poor girl had filled in the form on board the boat, as did we all. Thus there was not even the option of going for the medical clearance in this instance! This just confirmed my opinion that this medical form needs some tweaking. I appreciate the need for it - but the way it plays out in practice is frustrating. We're all reasonable adults, and I felt like I'd failed a trick question. I'm happy to edit my review to give you the extra points if you'll be happy to think about my suggestion ;)
