Hi,
My mom is cancer patient since March 2020. Her treatment was completed in Feb 2021 and fully recovered however we recently found that she has lymph again. It is at initial stage and there is nothing to worry. She will have to undergo from small surgery and few settings of chemo and radiations.

Since she was fully recovered, we have applied for visitor visa ( reason is I am expecting in Feb 2022) Now, we are in process of visa and I am worried for her medical exams.
She will recover by end of the Dec 2021 (according to doctor) however, her medical is scheduled next month which will be somewhere middle of he Chemotherapy.

Please guide/advice if anyone had similar situation and is it going to be concern for medical since she will be fully recovered before she fly and of course, if she is not in condition then she wont be flying.

I would personally withdraw the TRV application and reapply again once she has finished the treatment and can take the medical. I don't think it's a good idea to get the medical done while she is in the middle of chemo.

Hope she feels better soon.

She must declare her ongoing cancer treatment during the medical. Would add that it is probably not advisable for her to travel given covid so soon after treatment ending due to the higher risk of contracting covid and getting seriously ill. She may also have a very big problem getting health insurance to cover her in Canada so soon after treatment and given her health it would not be advisable to travel without health insurance that would provide adequate coverage for anything potentially related to the cancer or chemo/radiation side effects. Insurance companies try to get out of paying by looking into your previous medical history. You’ll need to read the fine print of policies.
