Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

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.

Recommended For Myomectomy

Female patients who are suffering from uterine fibroids (also called myoma or leiomyoma of the uterus) can be the candidates for myomectomy. It does not happen often, but sometimes leiomyoma of the uterus develops cancer, and it may cause bleeding, pain, and infertility.

Not Recommended For Myomectomy

If the patient's leiomyoma did not turn into cancer, which rarely happens, then the patient is suitable for the operation. It is relatively a safer and less complex operation than a hysterectomy.

Overview

Myomectomyis a surgery for the removal of uterine fibroids. Also, this treatment lets patients avoid hysterectomy operation. There are different kinds of myomectomy, which are hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, an abdominal myomectomy (or laparotomic myomectomy). In contrast to hysterectomy, patients who had myomectomy can get pregnant after the operation.


Types of Myomectomy Surgery

There are three main types of myomectomy procedure: 

• Hysteroscopic Myomectomy – hysteroscopic myomectomy is usually used to remove uterine fibroids growing inside the uterus. Hysteroscopy is a medical device inserted through the vagina and allowing for operation without external incisions. 

• Laparoscopic Myomectomy – This method is very useful in cases of minor uterine fibroids which are located on the outer wall of the uterus. Laparoscopic myomectomy is performed with a medical tool called laparoscope. It involves a camera and a light. Surgeons make several small incisions instead of a single big one.

• Abdominal Myomectomy (Laparotomic Myomectomy) – In this method, surgeons make a large incision in the abdomen. This method finds its use in complicated cases of leiomyoma of the uterus, with large numbers of uterine fibroids in different locations.

Preparation

Before the surgery, some patients may need hormonal therapy with so-called GnRH-a. It would be effective in reducing the bleeding from the uterus. Also, before the operation, you should always inform your doctors about the medical conditions you have and the medicines you are taking. Therefore, your doctors may want you to stop taking some of the medicines which may affect the process negatively. 

How It Is Performed

Even though there are different methods (hysteroscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy, and abdominal myomectomy) to perform myomectomy, their purpose is the same, which is to the removal of the uterine fibroids. After the operation, surgeons pay attention to the operated area in case of extreme bleeding to stop it, and they might make stitches. (like in the abdominal myomectomy and, to a smaller extent, in the laparoscopic myomectomy).

Recovery

The myomectomy recovery period varies depending on the type of the myomectomy performed. Hysteroscopic myomectomy has a very short recovery time, which is a couple of days while the recovery period for abdominal myomectomy is around 6 weeks. In general, during the myomectomy recovery period, patients may experience pain, but it would not require any medical intervention.

Risks

Even though the myomectomy surgery is a safe one, still there are some risks and complications. For example, surgeons may cause harm to surround organs during the operation. Also, infection is one of the complications of myomectomy. Rarely, this surgery may cause infertility in some of the patients. Yet the most important complication of myomectomy is extreme bleeding. Surgeons may need to perform a hysterectomy to be able to stop it.

Side Effects

Myomectomy surgery has no known side effects.

Success Rates

There is no clear data about the success rate of myomectomy operation, but it is known that many patients who had myomectomy are pleased. 

Faq

What Is Myomectomy? 

Myomectomy is performed as a treatment for uterine fibroids. Myomectomy can be performed in three different ways. During the hysteroscopic myomectomy, surgeons remove uterine fibroids from the vagina while in laparoscopic myomectomy several small cuts are made and in abdominal myomectomy, there is a big cut made to perform the operation. There are different kinds of methods for the different needs of the patients.

 

 

Myomectomy vs. Hysterectomy – Which Is Better? 

The answer depends on the patient's expectation. If the patient is willing to get pregnant, then myomectomy is the best choice. However, hysterectomy enjoys higher success rates when it comes to the overall satisfaction of patients. 

 

Is There a Connection between Fibroids and Pregnancy? 

Many patients have uterine fibroids without even realizing it. Yet there might be issues caused by leiomyoma of the uterus which can lead to performing of myomectomy surgery.
