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

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Overview

Lung cancer is one of the most widespread kinds of cancer and the most frequent reason of cancer death. This critical illness may have numerous causes, comprising environment, smoking along with genetics and other medical circumstances. Treatment success of lung cancer generally relies upon the cancer stages– it is better to notice the signs of cancer earlier. Relying upon its stage, lung cancer treatment may aim to heal the patient entirely or only offer better living conditions in the last months. More and more patient prefer every year to seek lung cancer treatment abroad.

Preparation

Lung cancer treatment options are many, involving lung cancer surgery, chemotherapy for lung cancer, and radiation therapy. Consequently, we cannot mention a standardized preparation process. Regarding lung cancer surgery, you should discontinue using a blood thinner for a couple of days before and fast for a few hours. Regarding radiation therapy and chemotherapy, there is no particular preparation. You should get your needed medical appointments done in advance to your radiation and chemotherapy because it may be not possible throughout these lung cancer treatments.

How It Is Performed

In the case of early-stage cancer or it is not much aggressive, specialists may effort to resect it completely or in any case its majority with lung cancer surgery. On the other hand, particularly in later stage cancer, chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be combined. If specialists choose to use chemotherapy for lung cancer, anti-cancer drug injection, or a pill will be given to the patient. In radiation therapy, radioactive substances in harmless doses will be given to destroy the cancer cells. Radiation may be external as beams, or internal by way of injection.

Recovery

Lung cancer treatment recovery is a somewhat longer period. In the case of lung cancer surgery, the complete recovery may take weeks or in fact, months. As for chemotherapy and radiation therapy, some side effects might be involved to the long period of recovery. Recovery from radiation therapy lasts months, whereas chemotherapy can last years. On particular occasions, complete recovery from these lung cancer treatments may never happen. Nonetheless, the patient may live in better conditions with rehabilitation and medicines.

Risks

Treatment of lung cancer may carry some risks and complications regardless of receiving lung cancer surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. Lung cancer surgery may lead to an unnecessary amount of bleeding, along with infections. Chemotherapy combined with radiation therapy may lead to severe damage to vital organs or bring, both real and phantom, pain.

Side Effects

In the same way, lung cancer treatment has some side effects. Specifically chemotherapy mixed with radiotherapy. They are:
• Feeling of over-all weakness, getting easily tired• Easy bruising and swelling of the body
• Chronic pain in several body parts
• Vomiting
On the other hand, it should be noted that the alternative to these lung cancer treatments is in a long run death, whereas these procedures provide an opportunity for healing or extending life..

Success Rates

Survival rates of lung cancer patients rely mainly upon the lung cancer stage. For early-stage lung cancer patients, the 5-year survival rate is as high as 55%. On the other hand, for late-stage lung cancer patients, the 5-year survival rate is only 5%.

Before And After

After the treatment, the recovery period will be pretty long. Some side effects may never completely disappear, yet with appropriate medicines, you will have a better life.

Faq

Which Kind of Lung Cancer Treatment Should I Choose?
You should not choose your treatment by yourself. Your cancer specialist will assess the size, stage and exact location of cancer and then will decide which type of treatment for lung cancer is suitable for you and –what’s most important – will bring good outcomes.

Why Cannot I Have a Lung Cancer Surgery instead of Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy?
It means that your cancer has spread and it is not possible to simply cut it out.
Drug is used in Chemotherapy for Lung Cancer?
There are numerous kinds of drugs used in chemotherapy treatment. In order to learn the name of your drug, you should ask your cancer specialist.
