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 Anal Fissure Treatment

Most of the patient’s situation does not require surgery for the treatment of anal fissure. For most of the patients changing their diet to a fiber-rich one and doing sports is quite adequate. Some of the patients may need anal fissure medicines so as to heal their fissures. Only a small part of the patients requires anal fissure surgery. These patients suffer from a chronic anal fissure, which means despite the treatment, the problem reoccurs repeatedly.

Not Recommended For Anal Fissure Treatment

Anal fissure treatment surgery is not a very invasive one, and most of the people are eligible to undergo it if anal fissure medicines do not work.

Duration Of Operation

30 unites or less

Overview

An anal fissure is a condition in which there is an open sore or tears in the lining of one’s anus. Although anal fissure is mistaken for hemorrhoids commonly, these two are different medical conditions. While hemorrhoid is a condition of exposed blood vessels, anal fissure is an ulcer in one’s anus resulted by poor diet and other related factors.Therefore, hemorrhoid and anal fissure have completely different treatments. People who have anal fissure experience fissure pain and bleeding bright blood during the defecation.

Preparation

An anal fissure surgery is a minor operation. Therefore, there is no need for detailed preparation. However, you should inform your doctor about the medical problems you have and medicines you are taking. Your doctor might ask you to stop taking medications with blood-thinning qualities. The day before your operation, you will have to empty your colon. 

How It Is Performed

During the anal fissure treatment operation, surgeons aim to cut the internal part of the patient’s anal sphincter, which is a muscle ring controlling the anus. By this way, an anal fissure can heal as a result of the relieving pressure on the anal fissure. Anal fissure operation is relatively a short one. Even though the anal fissure surgery is fairly a safe procedure, surgeons may choose to use general anesthesia during the operation. Since the research findings suggest that patients who were under general anesthesia are more likely to have good results in their fight with chronic anal fissure.

Recovery

The recovery period from the anal fissure treatment is around 6 weeks, only 2 weeks being away from work. The sensation of fissure pain decreases over time. It does not happen immediately. You may still feel pain for some time after the operation. 

Risks

Although the anal fissure treatment is fairly a safe procedure, there are several complications which may occur such as bleeding and the perianal abscess that requires an operation as well.

Side Effects

After the anal fissure treatment operation, fecal incontinence may occur for some of the patients. Though usually, patients experience it only for a few days or weeks. A minority of the patients experience this problem permanently with the need for medical help.

Success Rates

The success rate of anal fissure treatment through anal fissure surgery is close to 100%.

Faq

-What Is Fissure? 

An ulcer or a tear in one’s anal canal is called anal fissure. Fissure pain and light-colored bleeding while defecating are some of the symptoms of anal fissure. Most of the time, there is no need for anal fissure treatment, but a healthy diet is recommended.

-How to Cure Fissure Permanently? 

It is recommended to have an anal fissure operation when other kinds of treatments are not effective for patients who are suffering from chronic anal fissure. With this way, the patient can have a permanent result, but sometimes it reoccurs for some of the patients.

-Is There a Fissure Treatment without Surgery? 

Absolutely. Most of the patients who experience anal fissure pain do not need surgery. Rather, they are offered diet advice and some fissure medications.
