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.

Recommended For Abdominal Hysterectomy

Abdominal hysterectomy can be performed for a couple of different reasons. One of them is heavier than normal periods. Among other common reasons for hysterectomy belongs pelvic pain for which other treatments proved insufficient. However, most of the time, abdominal hysterectomy is performed for the treatment of tumors such as fibroids and various cancers, involving uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and cervical cancer.

Not Recommended For Abdominal Hysterectomy

Many patients are suitable for abdominal hysterectomy unless the patient is suffering from other health problems which might cause risk for the procedure. Though the possibility of pregnancy is crucial in this procedure. Removal of the abdominal uterus either as a total or partial hysterectomy leaves no chance for pregnancy. Therefore, hysterectomy is mostly chosen as the last option when all the other treatments fail.

Overview

Hysterectomy is a surgical operation that is performed to remove the uterus as well as with the surrounding organs. There are several practices for performing the hysterectomy, such as laparoscopic hysterectomy. Abdominal hysterectomy is performed by making an incision in the lower abdomen. Besides the technique of the hysterectomy, the scope of the hysterectomy procedure is also very important. There are different kinds of hysterectomy in terms of its scope, such as partial hysterectomy, total hysterectomy, and radical hysterectomy. Doctors decide on the technique and the type of hysterectomy to perform in accordance with the patient’s medical state.

Preparation

Before the operation, it is very important to talk to your doctor about your medical conditions in addition to the medications you are taking. This way, your doctor would inform you about your preparation for the abdominal hysterectomy and may recommend you stop taking some medicines. Also, as soon as your abdominal hysterectomy surgery is scheduled, try to lead a healthy lifestyle, with a good, balanced diet, free of cigarettes and full of the workout.

How It Is Performed

Abdominal hysterectomy operation begins by making an incision in the patient’s lower abdomen. This way, the doctor removes the organs with accordance to the kind of hysterectomy procedure: 
• Partial hysterectomy – during partial hysterectomy patient’s womb is removed without removing the cervix. Though this type of hysterectomy is not very common because of the risk of cervical cancer.
• Total hysterectomy – the surgeon removes both womb and cervix during a total hysterectomy,
• Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – in this type of hysterectomy procedure, a doctor attempts to remove not only womb and cervix but also the fallopian tubes and ovaries. 
• Radical hysterectomy – radical hysterectomy is the type of uterus removal with the widest scope. During this type of operation, womb, cervix, fallopian tubes, the ovaries, and a part of the vagina are removed by the surgeons. This method is most beneficial as a treatment for aggressive cancer cases.

Recovery

After the operation, patients should rest for a couple of days. After the surgery, the patient might be required to stay at the hospital for around 5 days. However, while staying at the hospital, the patient would be asked to take short walks in order to prevent any complications related to the procedure. Also, during the first couple of days, a catheter might be inserted to the patient in order to urinate as well as gauze inserted into your vagina to prevent bleeding. After that, the patient’s at-home recovery can begin, which might last for several weeks.

Scars After Surgery

Most of the time, during the abdominal hysterectomy, an incision is made horizontally along the pubic hairline. Therefore, it would not be noticeable even when you wear underwear.

Risks

Abdominal hysterectomy has several risks and complications. Although it is rare, during the procedure, doctors may cause damage to the different organs, such as bowel, bladder, or the ureter. Also, internal bleeding might occur due to uterus removal. Moreover, there is a risk for infections, but in order to prevent such cases, patients are supplied with antibiotics.

Side Effects

Abdominal hysterectomy has several side effects. These include: 
• Early menopause symptoms – this side effect is related to the total hysterectomy or radical hysterectomy operation when the ovaries are removed.
• Weight gain after hysterectomy – Similarly, this side effect might happen because of the removed ovaries resulted by an abdominal hysterectomy.
• Increased or decreased pleasure from sex – Patients who were experiencing pelvic pain may experience increased pleasure from sexual acts, after the surgery. Though, sometimes the patient may experience decreased 

Success Rates

Since there are different types of abdominal hysterectomy, it is difficult to estimate the average success rate of the operation. Though it is known that the rate of patients who survived the uterus removal operation is more than 99%.

Before And After

Patients who underwent a successful abdominal hysterectomy operation can have improved living standards because of the lack of pain, which was affecting them previously. However, they need to get used to some of the side effects of hysterectomy.
