I am looking to get a new job and had a successful first interview. I am having major surgery in the near future, and it looks like if I got this position, I would only be working there for a month and a half prior to my surgery. This is a serious surgery that has a 3 week minimum recovery and a 3 month no lifting restriction. When in the process should I disclose that this is coming up? This is a dream job, and I do not want to lose the opportunity for it, but also appreciate transparency.
I am also wondering about how insurance gaps work - I am getting continuous treatment for breast cancer - and cannot go without it. Finally, do you have resources to find out about disability coverage for when I am out due to surgery? I know that I would be covered with my current job on all of these and am nervous about starting with a new company and not having coverage.
