Travel insurance question - maintenance or not

I've just posted this in the travel insurance group, but I wanted to post it here as well so that more people with lymphoma can see it.

I've just finished treatment for follicular lymphoma and I'm waiting for my scan then an appointment with my consultant. It's been mentioned that I may not be offered maintenance treatment, and I'm considering whether to fight for it, including asking for a second opinion at another hospital.

Something that may affect my decision is how easy, and expensive, it will be to get travel insurance. I'd love to hear from anyone who has, or hasn't, had maintenance treatment, and how that affected getting travel insurance. Is it more difficult, and more expensive, if you're having maintenance treatment? Or it is much easier to arrange if treatment is 'finished' (at least for now)?

I'd love to know. Please let me know if you've had either experience.

  • Hi Joy57 welcome to the forum and sorry that you have not had a reply as yet. I know that the subject of Travel Insurance has come up several times before here on the forum but I cant find the link to insert it for you. However, I wonder if you may like to give the Macmillan Line a call as they may be able to help or advise about the query you have re maintenance or even companies who do do Travel Insurance for people with Cancer without it costing a fortune. 08088080000.
