Can I get financial cover whilst recovering from major surgery?

I am a transgender female and am having my gender reassignment surgery in early 2020 but I don't think my employers will be paying me my usual salary for the entire 12 weeks I am off work for whilst recovering. Is there any insurance or something else in place that anyone is aware of that will cover my living... show more I am a transgender female and am having my gender reassignment surgery in early 2020 but I don't think my employers will be paying me my usual salary for the entire 12 weeks I am off work for whilst recovering.
