Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

Recommended For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is mostly performed as a result of the gallstones. Although gallstones usually cause no problem sometimes, they may cause pain and irritation and cholecystitis, which is a condition of an infected gallbladder. Gallbladder removal surgery is recommended for patients who are suffering from pain caused by the gallstones. Even though there are other options for the treatment of gallstones, laparoscopic cholecystectomy remains to be the best one.

Not Recommended For Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Not all of the patients who have gallstones experience repetitive, strong pain. Therefore, sometimes, patients do not realize their gallstones. Also, occasionally, gallbladder removal is not needed to get rid of the gallstones. However, most of the time, cholecystectomy is performed for the cholecystitis.

Overview

Laparoscopic cholecystectomyis a type of cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) operation which is performed with the medical tool called laparoscopy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is often performed for the treatment of cholecystitis or inflammation of the gallbladder. Gallbladder storages and collects the liquid called bile, which produced in the liver. Just like the appendix, the gallbladder can be removed from the body without the experience of any serious side effects.

Preparation

Before the laparoscopic cholecystectomy, it is important to talk to your doctor about the medical conditions you have and medicines you are taking. Your doctor may want you to stop taking some of the medicines. Also, some surgeons suggest a diet to follow before the operation. In addition, you should not eat anything for a couple of hours before the surgery.In this way, the risk of laparoscopic cholecystectomy complications will be kept lower.

How It Is Performed

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is becoming to be the most popular way of performing cholecystectomy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is shown to be an effective way with fewer risks for the management of cholecystitis. During the laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery, surgeons make several small cuts rather than a single big one like made in the open surgery. Through one of the cuts, laparoscope is inserted so as to see the incision site. Different medical tools are inserted through the other incisions to perform the surgery.

Recovery

Recovery from the laparoscopic cholecystectomy takes several weeks. It usually takes about 2 weeks to go back to work after the surgery. After the gallbladder surgery, there might be some pain experienced, but it can be eased by the painkillers. Also, surgeons may give you antibiotics for your recovery period.

ScarsAfterSurgery

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy scars should fade with time and be hard to spot since laparoscopic cholecystectomy incisions are small, unlike in open gallbladder removal surgery.

Risks

Even though there are few complications regarding the laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery, patients should be informed about them. Complications of the laparoscopic cholecystectomy include infection, damage to the bile duct, and bile spilling into the abdomen. However, these complications are not very common since the use of laparoscopy causes smaller incisions. 

Success Rates

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a very effective way of performing gallbladder removal with a success rate of 95%.More than that, 90% of patients undergoing removal of gallbladder leave for home within 24 hours after gallbladder removal.

Before And After

Diet after Gallbladder Removal

Though surgeons do not suggest any specific diet to follow after the operation. Side effects of the surgery would pass in a short period of time.Instead, it is advised to keep a balanced, healthy diet after gallbladder removal, without any specific conditions.
