While my position is not the same, I'm writing to find out if your medical was granted?
We (me and my OH) have applied for a 175 visa and are concerned that she will fail the medical. We are working on the approach that if we dont try we wont know, but feel that the likelyhood is low.
Having lived in Aus under a 457 visa for 3 years my OH was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2006. We came home for treatment primarily to be near family and are now looking to return to Aus. The problem is she has an underlying medical condition that the doctors in Australia started her on IVIG (intragam) and she is now dependant. The problem bieng she is only 18months in remission, and taking a drug that is not on the pbs and stated as being one of considerable cost.
We are awaiting a response having completed the medicals last week, but if anyone has any advice it would be appreciated.
I hope you got the result you were looking for.
