Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Gastrectomy is a stomach surgery, during which professionals remove a piece of stomach or stomach entirely. There are few purposes behind experiencing such a stomach procedure - a portion of these of strict health-related nature, while in different cases gastrectomy operation is treated as weight loss treatment such as stomach sleeve. Regardless of the case, it is a significant medical operation, affecting the quality of patient’s life along with their habits in the future.

Preparation

Preparation for gastrectomy has a couple of stages. Firstly, when the decision about partial or total gastrectomy is taken, your professional needs to be aware of every kind of diseases and medical conditions that you are suffering, just as all the drugs you take regularly. Then, the ones that can affect your stomach removal surgery will be identified. Also, put away all blood-thinning medications such as aspirins are crucial, about a week prior to your surgery. Lastly, a few days before gastrectomy, you need to fast and not take neither food nor even a sip of water.

How It Is Performed

Gastrectomy has four categories
•Total gastrectomy – doctor erases whole of the sufferer’s stomach during stomach surgery 
•Partial gastrectomy – generally stomach’s lower part is taken from the sufferer
•Sleeve gastrectomy – left the side of the stomach is removed alone in gastric surgery, it is carried out generally as a weight loss procedure 
•Oesophagogastrectomy – both the top of one's stomach and some part of the gullet is removed Apart from this, there are two main techniques of gastrectomy, regarding the way the doctor accesses the patient's stomach. In the classical method, the abdomen of the patient is opened in order to carry out the gastrectomy. On the other hand, the newer approach is the laparoscopic gastrectomy, where rather than a bigger cut, small incisions are made, and the abdomen is entered with the use of laparoscopy. This strategy for stomach medical procedure results in a shorter recovery period, and the scar of it will be less noticeable.

Recovery

After a day or two from your gastrectomy can be a fairly distressing experience. A tube will be put in your stomach through your nose in to gather fluids created by it. For the following days after stomach surgery, you will have to remain at the hospital for your recovery period. Then, there comes a normal life with a completely new diet – the doctor will introduce you into details, but shortly, food will need to be vitamin-rich while high-fiber foods are forbidden. This eating routine may be needed for a few months after your stomach operation or even longer than that.

Risks

Operation of Gastrectomy is a complicated surgery, during which you may be exposed to some risks. Which includes infections, internal bleeding, leaking of stomach acid, and complications related to your digestive system. On the other hand, these complications are uncommon, and if you accompanied by a good professional, you won't be experienced during your gastrectomy.

Side Effects

Dumping syndrome is one of the most crucial side effects of partial or total gastrectomy. Many patients who treated for stomach removal operation are also experiencing it. Eating too much or choosing foods that are unsuitable will make your gastric system reacted with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Nevertheless, if you use a personalized diet after your surgery, the dumping syndrome will be restrained. 

Success Rates

Gastrectomy operation’s success relies on the type of stomach removal carried out. As for partial or sleeve gastrectomy, the rate of success is estimated to be approximately 99%, with a 75% rate of success as for weight loss outcome. As for total gastrectomy, the 5-year survival rate is thought to be around 70%.

Before And After

The essential difference after gastrectomy is eating habit. Adjusting to it might take some time. Aside from it, stomach removal should affect a patient's well-being, regarding both health and (in the case of patients suffering previously from morbid obesity) weight loss positively.

Faq

Is Gastric Sleeve a Good Weight Loss Treatment?  Most of the specialists use a gastric sleeve or other techniques such as lap band and gastric bypass only if more traditional, non-invasive methods such as diet and active lifestyle fail. Therefore, sleeve gastrectomy is rather the last attempt at weight loss treatment. 

How does your Life Look Like after Gastrectomy? 
It relies on the scope of your operation. However, usually, patients get used to their new eating habits and can lead to a better quality of life. 

Is Gastrectomy a Good Method of Fighting a Stomach Cancer? 
It relies on cancer, its size, position, and improvement. Your doctor will choose whether stomach removal is an appropriate method for battling with cancer.
