Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

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.
