I am recovering from a stroke and the subsequent mechanical thrombectomy I had three weeks ago. The majority of my initial symptomsu(unable to speak, loss of use of my right hand side) have eased. I am however left with fatigue, memory loss and brain fog/confusion not to mention a mental battle trying to comprehend what has happened.
During my recovery I have spoken with a number of friends and they asked if had critical illness cover as i may be elligble to claim. I am 37 years old and previously very fit and active so the thought of having to make a claim like this had never occurred to me.
So I guess I’m here looking for some guidance and advice from people who may have gone through the claims process after suffering a stroke. Sorry if this appears basic but i’m not sure where to begin.
Appreciate any help you may be able to provide.
