During those months my recruiter constantly attempted to track down my medical records (needed for a med waiver) they were sent to a company to be digitized and that company essentially told him that they lost them. So my six month bar was up as of March this year and we submitted a request to the National Archive in St. Louis. No progress was made at all until last week my recruiter tells me that he might have access to the paperwork he needs and we may not need the full medical records after all. So now it's June and we could've started this waiver process in March.

With your situation, it doesn't sound like there's much you can do to move things along. Be sure to constantly touch base with your recruiter, he might have your case on the back burner of his mind since the ball is now in MEPS' court. But a two minute phone call from you might prompt him to call up to MEPS to hound them a bit and get your packet moving.
Hearing tests are finicky....you should know that from your prior service time but lets say your hearing is degraded can you function in a denied environment or a hide site where noise and light discipline are paramount, not to mention trying to communicate in a new language you will be taught where having solid concentration with good hearing will be critical to picking up the sounds in the new language.....I recommend that you sleep with earplugs in at least 2-3 times a week to allow your eardrums to rest and regain sensitivity
