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 Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal hysterectomy is performed for the following reasons, involving:
• Abnormal bleeding and pelvic pain without a specific cause – Doctors may also find hysterectomy appropriate for the solution of certain gynecological problems.
• Cancer of several types, involving uterine cancer and cervical cancer.
The main reason why vaginal hysterectomy is preferred to abdominal hysterectomy is that it is less painful, and the healing process is faster

Not Recommended For Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal hysterectomy is not the first choice if cervical and uterine cancer is suspected. In addition, endometriosis is treated by abdominal hysterectomy.In cases where it is not possible to remove from the vagina due to the size of the uterus, abdominal hysterectomy is carried out.

Overview

Vaginal hysterectomy is the procedure of removing the uterus and other organs through the vagina and not through an incision such as in the abdomen or laparoscopic hysterectomy. As is generally accepted, the recovery time of vaginal hysterectomy is faster and does not have the risk of complications as abdominal hysterectomy.

The method used in vaginal hysterectomy allows the application of different types, like:

• Subtotal hysterectomy – It is the most limited type of hysterectomy. Only the uterus of the patient is removed.

• Total hysterectomy – both uterus and cervix are removed from the patient.

• Radical hysterectomy – In this procedure of hysterectomy, uterus, cervix, surrounding tissues, glands and parts of the vagina are removed.

• Hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – radical and total hysterectomy may additionally involve the removal of fallopian tubes and ovaries.

In some cases, vaginal hysterectomy may be supported by laparoscopy. This procedure is called laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy. Specialists who do not wish to undergo total laparoscopic hysterectomy due to lack of experience or different situations use laparoscopy to provide a clear view of the uterus and other organs.

ScarsAfterSurgery

Vaginal hysterectomy does not result in scarring, as in abdominal hysterectomy, because organs are removed through the vagina. The experience of the doctor and the fact that the medical condition does not require abdominal hysterectomy can be considered as an advantage.

Risks

As vaginal hysterectomy positively impacts hysterectomy recovery period and minimizes the infection risk attributable to lack of open cuts, it likewise has negative sides. These involve an increased risk of damage to other organs.
