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

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Diabetes is the most widely recognized reason for final-phase liver illness. Around 25% of renal transplant patients experience the ill effects of diabetes.

Not Recommended For Kidney Transplant

Overview

Kidney transplantation, otherwise called a renal transplant or kidney transplant procedure is a kind of organ transplant where a healthy kidney of a healthy donor is transplanted into a patient suffering a final-phase renal illness.

Two kinds of renal transplant can be seen: 

● Cadaveric renal transplant – the kidney transplant operation from a deceased donor
● Living donor kidney transplantation – the kidney transplant operation from a living donor, generally an individual from the receiver’s family.

While numerous receivers usually receive kidneys from members in the family, the donor does not need to be biologically related to the recipient. Renal transplant necessities are basic: 

The donor and recipient must have a congruent ABO blood group and a congruent HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen) system.

Preparation

Patients have to quit smoking beforehand the kidney transplantation operation. Also, blood thinners should be avoided. Some patients may need to lose weight before the kidney transplant can start.

How It Is Performed

The kidney transplant operation is carried out under general anesthesia and often lasts 3 or 4 hours to finish. The surgeon will make an incision in the abdomen area and then will start attaching the donor kidney to the veins and arteries in the receiver’s lower abdomen. The ureter will then be attached from the donor's kidney to the receiver’s bladder. After the new kidney acquires a stable supply of blood and is attached to the bladder, it will begin operating immediately, generating urine. The incision area is then shut with sews, and the patient may start their recovery process from a kidney transplant.

Recovery

During the recovery period of a kidney transplant, the patient will be prescribed immunosuppressant drugs, which ceases the recipient’s immune system from refusing the new kidney. Patients generally remain about 5 to 7 days in the hospital. The new kidney will begin functioning at full potential about 5 to 10 days after the renal transplant.

Patients have to stay away from green teas, pomegranate, or grapefruit since these foods are recognized as interacting negatively with the kidney transplantation operation.

Risks

Complications of a kidney transplant can involve:

● Infection
● Proteinuria
● Ulceration of the abdominal
● Gastrointestinal inflammation
● Transplant refusal – chronic, acute or hyperacute

Kidney transplant refusal happens in 10 to 15% of renal transplant patients throughout the initial 2 months after the kidney transplant operation. In such a situation, medicinal changes or alternative treatments are necessary..

Side Effects

Patients can experience pain, discomfort, a sense of weakness after the renal transplant operation. The patient’s immune system would require to be suppressed and this can result in additional health issues.

Success Rates

90% success rate is seen, 5 years after the renal transplant is done.

Before And After

Kidney transplantation can lengthen the life of people experiencing a final-phase renal illness. Patients of renal transplant generally live 10 to 15 years longer than patients remained on dialysis. Mostly, younger kidney transplantation patients experience a more significant increase in longevity. Patients generally have more energy, less limited diets, and struggle with fewer health difficulties after a kidney transplant operation.

Faq

– What can I do to avoid transplant refusal after a renal transplant?
Patients need to follow the immunosuppressant drug plan thoroughly in order to avoid kidney transplant refusal. Even if the new kidney is healthy, it doesn’t mean it cannot get diseased if the renal transplant patient has an unhealthy lifestyle.

– What is a perfect match kidney?
A perfect match is when there is a degree of kinship between the donor and the receiver – e.g. a brother or a sister.

– If I get a new kidney through a kidney transplant procedure, will the diseased kidney be removed?
The diseased kidney will not be removed during the renal transplant procedure – it can result in more medical complications.
