UK post surgery Travel insurance issues
« on: September 14, 2021, 06:41:47 am »
Hi All,

I am due to go on Holiday tomorrow and for over a week our travel insurance company has been dragging its feet with my health declaration

It says have you had any surgery in last 12 months which i have, but Vaginoplasty was not listed in the the surgeries

I telephoned them and they asked what was it my doctor diagnosed i had that required for surgery

in the end I explained to them that I had my penis removed and vagina installed (just for the fun of it obviously)

We fly in about 18 hours and they keep saying they are checking with the under writer

anyone else had issues with post surgery travel insurance?

Thanks

Carla

I had these issues and in the end just went without travel medical insurance. :o  Not everything in life can always be insured!
I first told a psychiatrist that I wanted to be a girl in 1967 after a psychotic breakdown
Began therapy again with gender specialist 50 years later in September 2017
Began HRT November 2017

I hope you are able to enjoy your holiday even if this matter was not satisfactorily resolved beforehand.

On your return, perhaps you could let us know to what extent if at all, it was resolved as many Brits including myself will wish to take holiday abroad or on cruise. Thanking you.

Hugs
