Hi all,

I had bacterial meningitis as a young baby and recovered about 6 months after diagnosis. I was in Germany training for some Army boxing and the pre fight medical got refused due to the fact that i had had meningitis as a baby.

Doctor said there could be brain scarring, as with anyone who contracts it at such a young age. I recently saw an RAF doctor to ask if i could have a brain scan in order to clear me for some mma sparring and in the long term future a contest or two but he basically said hes never heard of brain scarring and isnt worried one bit.

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Ive never had any complications or problems health wise since having meningitis.

Thanks kindly
