The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Overview

Colectomy is a surgery performed for the removal of the colon either entirely or partly.There might be different reasons for colectomy to be performed, such as colon cancer and other illnesses associated with the lower part of the digestive system.Colectomy is a widespread operation performed for thousands of people every year. Numerous patients choose to have a colectomy in a foreign country so as to recover in beneficial settings and advantage from affordable prices.

Preparation

Surgeons should be informed about the other illnesses the patient has, and the medications the patient has been taking. To have a cleansed colon, the patients should be taking some of the medications which their doctors prescribed (e.g., laxatives union as the surgery day approaches. Also, the patient should fast before a couple of hours of the surgery.

How It Is Performed

Colectomy is performed in numerous different ways. Colectomy can be performed either as a laparoscopic colectomy (with a medical tool called laparoscope) or as an open surgery (with an incision in the lower abdomen). Also, there are scopes of colectomy,which involve total colectomy, colorectal surgery (colon and rectum are removed) and partial colectomy in which a part of the colon is removed. Doctors would decide on the best method according to the illness the patient is suffering from and its prevalence and likelihood of relapse.After partial or total removal of the colon, the last part of colectomy may be the creation of stoma in order to divert the way waste is released from your body. This may be a permanent solution (a result of colorectal surgery) or a temporary one when the patient's colon needs to be left unused for some time in order to heal properly.Colostomy (part of the colon is diverted) and ileostomy (part of the small intestine is diverted) are the types of commonly used stomas.

Recovery

The recovery process of colectomy may differ from patient to patient depending on their type and scope of colon removal. While partial colectomy has a shorter recovery period, a patient who had total colectomy usually need a longer period of time to heal and get back to their daily routine. Recovery time of colectomy is expected to be in weeks or months. Patients who had colostomy or ileostomy will be required to use waste bags attached to the stoma after the operation.

Risks

Colectomy operation has numerous risks and complications including infection, internal or external bleeding, the occurrence of a blood clot and leakage through stitched intestines.Therefore, it is beneficial to monitor the changes that occur in your body after the operation.

Side Effects

For most of the patients, the most significant consequence of colectomy operation is the need to temporarily or permanently living with colostomy or ileostomy, which may initially cause discomfort. Though, shortly after the operation, patients can return to their usual diet and daily activities.

Success Rates

There is no single success rate for colectomy operation. The success rate varies depending on the kind of colon removal and its scope(whether it is a partial colectomy or total colectomy). Success rate differs from 90% to 13% in the most complicated conditions.The way colectomy surgery was performed has a significant role in the success rate as well. If the surgery was planned beforehand as a treatment for colon cancer or colon cancer prevention, the patient would have time to prepare for the operation, which leads the success rate to rise.However, in the case of emergency colon removal, the chances for proper healing are decreasing.

Before And After

Many patients who had colectomy go back to their daily life as before the procedure. Even though it might be difficult at first for the patients who need to use ileostomy or colostomy, they get used to it.

Faq

-Is Colostomy Necessary after Colectomy? No, it is not. In many cases of partial colectomy, it is possible to connect intestines, and there is no need for colostomy or ileostomy.

-Does Crohn Disease always Lead to Colectomy? 

No, it is dependent on the patient’s condition and the severity of the illness.

-Which One Is Better: Traditional Colectomy or Laparoscopic Colectomy?

Even though the laparoscopic colectomy surgeries are increasing, there is no clear data for its benefits over the traditional colectomy operation. However, laparoscopic colectomy thought to have a shorter recovery period and less risk of infection.
