Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

Fantastic!! Definitely recommend booking via flymedi, prices are affordable which isn’t the case where I live. So far everything’s running smoothly and any questions I’ve had have been answered honestly and promptly. very caring and professional towards your needs and no judgments

Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

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.
