I'm not sure where you live, but my experience in the US is that if you purchase your travel insurance within a certain timeframe from when you pay your first amount toward a trip -- i.e. a deposit, then you can get coverage for all preexisting medical conditions.  That timeframe varies by company, but is usually in the 14-60 day window.  You can call and ask them about preexisting condition coverage (you don't have to tell them what condition).

I always buy travel insurance and purchase in time to have preexisting conditions covered.  I've never, thankfully, had to use it for a medical reason.
