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.

Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

Recommended For Cystectomy

Total or partial cystectomy may be required in many medical conditions, such as:
1) UPJ obstruction: Bladder and kidney connection broke down. Generally seen in youths.
2) Bladder cancer: Generally, bladder surgery performed due to bladder cancer. Its symptoms include hematuria (blood in urine union pain while urinating, and frequent urination.
3) Some neurological disorders like cyclothymia may cause partial bladder removal due to its effect on urination patterns. 

Not Recommended For Cystectomy

Not everyone who has bladder cancer is suitable to have cystectomy. If you noticed signs of bladder cancer, the first step is visiting a specialist who will diagnose if you are cancer or not.

Discharge From Hospital

Up to one week

Duration Of Operation

3-5 hours

Overview

Cystectomy is a medical operation that includes total or partial bladder removal, and in some cases, the operation includes the construction of a new bladder, neobladder. Cystectomy bladder surgery is performed for a solution to bladder problems like bladder cancer, UPJ obstruction (Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction) just as to some neurological disorders.

Also, cystectomy procedure is made for ovarian cyst removal, but they don’t have much in common. In this article, we mention cystectomy as a bladder removal.

Preparation

If you have other medical problems, first you should inform your doctor. Then, a CT scan and different tests may require. Eating something before the operation is forbidden just as drinking anything hours before the operation. In some cases, mechanical bowel may be performed, but there are alternatives, and some doctors have doubts about this procedure has positive effects.

How It Is Performed

Cystectomy operation may be performed in two pays; partial or total bladder removal. In partial removal, doctors remove only scar tissue on the bladder and stitch up. In total bladder removal, the whole organ is removed. The second type of cystectomy generally performed if a patient has bladder cancer. During the operation, other organs and tissues may be removed with bladder as well. Cystectomy may be performed as open surgery through an incision on the abdomen. If partial bladder removal is performed, doctors may perform laparoscopic surgery, and it can be performed with a few small incisions. After the whole bladder removal, doctors have a few options to choose for the reorganization of a urinating system according to patient’s needs. A way to reorganize urinating system that becoming popular is called neobladder, a new bladder constituted from a piece of intestine. Another popular way is the ileal conduit or cystostomy. Patients can urinate with a created stoma and catheter. 

Recovery

The recovery period after cystectomy operation based on the type and extent of one’s bladder removal. Partial cystectomy’s healing process more rapid than radical cystectomy operation, due to chemotherapy and radiation therapy which needed after radical cystectomy. Generally, it takes to rest in the hospital for about a week. While you rest in hospital you’ll take strong painkillers and doctors will focus on your healing process. After this week, patients can leave the hospital. When you get into your normal function, doctors recommend you to walk and exercise, in case of neobladder creation, it will be more important to increase the time of urine kept in neobladder. The recovery process may take 6-8 weeks for the whole period of cystectomy.

Risks

Partial and radical cystectomy has some possible risks. Bladder removal may cause urine or stool leakages and kidney problems. Also, stoma problems may be seen by some patients after cystostomy. Nevertheless, these risks are uncommon.

Side Effects

Patients who undergo radical cystectomy which using neobladder or a bladder bag after cystostomy may experience some difficulties that will be pass in time, and it will become more and more acceptable. 

Success Rates

This operation’s success rate is based on the problem and the extent of bladder removal. The success rate depends on the stages and kinds of bladder cancer, changing from %50 to %90.
