I am a serving British Soldier. I had a 6cm stone in my right kidney, after months of all different treatrments, including open kidney surgery, I had my kidney removed in Nov 04. For the last few years I have worked in an office, but the Army now want me to go on a three week excersise in the cold, where I will be working with Armoured vehicles. I am worried about this as I have been told I have a greater chance of getting a Urinary infection. Do you think it is a good idea to be out in the cold for such a long period?
I would certainly say that you should cover properly, my husband too is in the army so i can sympathise with you. An old wives tail is to wear a vest, ie..layers rather than one thick layer. Maybe someone else on here has more info for you, but i would most certainly suggest a trip to the G/P just to belay your worries. Write down any questions or fears you might have so you can get it all done in one appointment hopefully b4 you go away.
sorry not much help,
