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 Liver Resection

Generally, liver cancer is thought to be triggered by other medical problems such as liver cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, or hepatitis. Therefore, for the patients who are suffering from these illnesses are recommended to get liver checkups regularly so as to monitor if they have any of the first symptoms of liver cancer. Early diagnosed patients with liver tumors are the most suited candidates for the operation of liver resection and liver transplant surgery. There is also a possibility of secondary liver cancer, usually originating from colorectal cancer.

Not Recommended For Liver Resection

At the early phases of liver cancer, liver resection is found to be efficient. Therefore, patients with high levels of liver cancer (stage 2 and higher) may not be able to benefit from the surgery. Also, sometimes, patients who are suffering from other health conditions may not be suitable for the operation as well.

Discharge From Hospital

Patient is required to stay 5 to 8 nights in the hospital

Overview

Liver resection is a surgery performed for the removal of the liver either partly or completely, and occasionally, liver transplant surgery is performed for the replacement of the liver. Liver resection operation is performed for patients who are suffering from liver cancer at stage 1 (stage A).

Preparation

Before the operation, your surgeon should be informed about the other illnesses you have and the medications you have been taking. Thus, your doctor can choose the best preparation for you and may ask you to stop some of your medication, such as the ones with blood-thinning qualities. Also, for liver transplant surgery, there must be a suitable donor found. Lastly, before the day of your surgery, you should not eat anything, and you will be able to drink only the drinks your surgeon agreed. 

How It Is Performed

Liver resection is performed in two different ways:

• Liver resection without a liver transplant –In this procedure, a patient's liver is removed partly. The removal can get up to 70% of the patient's liver. The rest of the liver left in the body grows and leads the patient's body to function as it did before. 

• Liver resection with liver transplant surgery – For this operation, a patient’s liver is removed completely, and it is replaced with either a liver or a part of a liver donated by mostly family members (if from a living donor).

Generally, surgeons perform the liver resection procedure by making a cut in the patient’s abdomen.

Recovery

It might take some time (around 8 weeks) for patients to recover after the liver resection procedure. Patients should stay at the hospital for the first 1-2 weeks after the surgery; during this time, medical staff would be monitoring the patient's liver functions and incision site. After this process, you will be released from the hospital. After the liver resection operation patients should stay active during their recovery time, even if it means a short walk a day. As for drinking alcohol, driving, and having sex, please ask your doctor first.

Risks

Patients might be experiencing some risks and complications after the liver resection or liver transplant operation such as infected incision and internal bleeding.As for liver transplant surgery, there is always some risk that the body will reject the liver transplant, putting the patient's life or health at risk. Because of the drugs being taken for the ensure the acceptance of liver transplant, kidney failure might occur

Side Effects

At first, the patient may experience pain, but it can be blocked with the help of painkillers. Also, the patient might experience numbness in the incision site for some time as a result of damaged nerves caused by the surgery.

Success Rates

For the success rate of liver resection, there is no exact information gathered. However, in some resources success rate is estimated to be around 50% whereas other resources estimated it to be between 10 to 60 percent.As for patients who underwent this procedure as a liver cancer treatment, many of them will see cancer regrowth after some months or years.

Faq

What Is Better – Liver Resection or Liver Resection with Liver Transplant Surgery? The choice of a liver transplant is dictated by patient’s medical situation. Not all the patients need to have a liver transplant surgery. Does Liver Resection Impair Liver’s Functions? The liver is the only organ which can regenerate in size – the part of liver left in patient’s body grows in order to fully perform its functions. For this reason, liver resection does not put patient’s body at risk of the underperforming liver. What Are the Conditions which Suggest a Liver Resection? There are many reasons for liver resection, such as liver cancer or advanced liver cirrhosis caused by alcoholic liver disease or hepatitis. Liver resection (with or without liver transplant surgery) is mostly practiced as a liver cancer treatment.
