If your doctor cleared you then there shouldn't be a problem.

My son fractured his femur when he was 9. His Recruiter told him he shouldn't even think of going Airborne. When he went to MEPS for his physical the doc there said there was no way he could be kept from going to Airborne School & even recommended it. He said it was the strongest part of his leg & if he broke anything it wouldn't be there. He not only went to Airborne School but became a Ranger.
