Year gone and I would like to go for holiday ..

Hi Slight smile

 A year since I finished my treatment - T4N3M0 Nasopharyngeal cancer.

 I got all clear last November. Still have my PEG as my diet is almost no existing - I am reading a lot how you guys doing and feel sorry about myself - I should push myself harder !!.

 I have neuropathy but life is good :)

I always look for support , advice from you: I do not write often - if so always moaning !!:) ,but I am reading a lot and it is so helpful .

 Thank you .

My partner and I would like to Tunisia but I cannot find cheap insurance - any tips ?

 Love you all x

  • Hi Dani I don't think there is ever a time, you don't have to declare medical conditions. Most of them ask have you ever had a medical condition.

    There’s a difference though. I guess there is no difference between ED and NED for these companies. It was just an idle thought. I’ve done my travelling and don’t stray far from home these days.

  • I’m off to the US next month for my second foreign holiday since lockdown (I went to Kefalonia in May). My travel insurance has always been provided by my Nationwide FlexAccount + which costs £13 per month and also provides breakdown cover and a few other perks. When I rang them about additional costs due to my cancer they told me that as long as I’d had no treatment in the past 12 months there was no charge.

  • I use them as well.  Previously they have covered me for everything except the cancer so booking late to reduce the cancellation risk is the way I do it.  Almost certainly if I have a problem abroad from the cancer then I will continue the holiday and come home to an appointment.

    Alas as I had an investigative Panendoscopy last October I am still in the category of under treatment so although no extra costs the exception for the cancer remains.
