Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Overview

Endoscopy is a medical procedure that utilizes an instrument named endoscope so as to inspect the patient's internal organs without performing a surgery. Endoscopy is a broad name, below which numerous others, for instance, colonoscopy, gastroenterology, hysteroscopy and, sigmoidoscopy are covered. Kinds of endoscopy are rely on the organ inspected and the route through which endoscope accesses one's body. 

Preparation

Similar to several different procedures, the initial phase prior to your endoscopy is to let your specialist know about your medical circumstances and medications. Particularly blood-thinners, for example, aspirin usage should be stopped so as to ensure that your procedure will be carried out without difficulties. In addition, fasting for a few hours before and maybe taking laxatives to clean your system is a necessity for several kinds of endoscopy, for example, upper GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy or colonoscopy.

How It Is Performed

There are numerous kinds of endoscopy, consisting of: 
•Upper endoscopy / upper GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy/gastroscopy – an endoscope accesses your body over your mouth and examineyour upper digestive system up to small intestine 
•Colonoscopy – accesses your body over your anus and examine your colon
•Sigmoidoscopy– likewise concentrated onthe sigmoidal part of your colon 
•Enteroscopy – concentrated on yoursmall bowel 
•Hysteroscopy – an endoscope is placed into the uterus to scan for origins of uncommon bleeding
•Capsule endoscopy – a novel, experimental method,inwhich endoscope is swallowed by a patient in the form of a capsule.  

Mostly, endoscopy is carried outwithout general anesthesia; occasionally, local anesthesia is given.

Recovery

An endoscopy has no recovery period. In case of being under local or general anesthesia, after your endoscopy, someone should drive you home. A few people may feel disturbed quite a while after colonoscopy and other kinds of endoscopy, where the endoscope is placed over the anus. However, it should cease in a day.

Risks

Although endoscopy is a somewhat safe and non-invasive technique, it might lead to a few complications. These consist of drilling of organ and internal bleeding along with infection. In any case, complications accompanying endoscopy are uncommon.
