  • F-1 visa validity in case of medical leave

    I am student from Fall 2011 batch. I have visa till Jun 2016. Currently I need to finish my last semester to graduate. But I had an accident and it required surgery. Currently I am in India for that since start of July and recovery is taking longer than expected. So I am thinking of medical leave for the semester Sept 2013 to Dec 2013 and coming back to USA in Jan 2014.
    So how will that work out ? is it even acceptable from visa point of view ?
    I will need new I-20. That will mean my OPT will be cut short in future and I need to get visa soon after I graduate.
    But the main question is will the medical leave create any problem in terms of my status ? I will be out of US if I take the leave from July to Dec.
    Please help me. Its an urgent situation
