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.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Recommended For Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas Treatment

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment candidates are all people who show signs of suffering from this disease and underwent examination by oncologist which reaffirmed the diagnosis. Most common non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma symptoms include:

• Swollen lymph nodes

• Fever

• Weight loss

• Night sweats

Not Recommended For Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas Treatment

If you are experiencing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma symptoms, your doctor has made a diagnosis, and you are in the state which allows you to undergo chemo- or radiotherapy, then you should take non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment under consideration.

Discharge From Hospital

Depends on the type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment

Overview

What is non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (known also as NHL)? It is a cancer attacking lymphatic system. There are several non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma types and they may have various reasons, starting from genetic and autoimmunological diseases, finishing with viruses such as HIV or Epstein-Barr virus. The most basic categorization of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma includes B-cell and T-cell lymphomas, depending on the type of lymphatic cells attacked first.

The main difference between Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells – in the case of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, these are observable under the microscope while in the latter these do not occur.

Preparation

Two most popular non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatments include chemo- and radiotherapy. In many cases, these two treatments are combined in order to achieve better results. There is no special preparation needed for chemotherapy apart from undergoing (if necessary) some other medical treatments before chemotherapy begins – for example visiting the dentist won’t be possible for some time after this treatment. Similarly, there is no specific preparation for radiotherapy. As for other non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatments, if they will be proposed, you should ask your oncologist about the best way to prepare for them.

How It Is Performed

There are several types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatments, including:

• Radiotherapy treatment

• Chemotherapy treatment

• Immunotherapy treatment

• Targeted therapy

• Plasmapheresis treatment

• Antibiotic therapy

• Surgery for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

• Stem cell transplant treatment

• Vaccine therapy – currently in clinical trials


Therefore, there is not one non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma procedure. In the case of chemotherapy, the chemicals used to destroy cancer cells are injected into patients body and after short observation, the patient is free to go home. If radiotherapy is used as a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment, it may be performed in the form of external radiation therapy or internal radiation therapy – radiation may be emitted by machine or by radioactive elements injected into patient’s body.

Recovery

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment recovery depends on the type of treatment used. In the case of radiation therapy recovery, most of its side effects fade and disappear during first days and weeks after the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment. Still, hair loss and tiredness may continue for some months. As for chemotherapy, its effects also take a long time to pass, sometimes even years. However, we shouldn’t forget that non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a life-threatening disease and therefore – potential lymphoma recovery period shouldn’t be thought as a counterargument against beginning the treatment.

Risks

Both chemotherapy and radiation treatment are radical methods of cancer treatments. Therefore, using the for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment carries certain risks and may cause serious complications. It is so because both of these methods damage not only cancer but also normal cells. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment risks may include lung scarring and increased risk of immunity-related diseases.

Side Effects

To non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment side effects belong:

• Tiredness

• Mouth and throat dryness

• Nausea

• Neurological problems

Success Rates

With new methods of treating different non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma types, the success rate of this treatment increases. Currently, it is estimated that 5-year success rate for patients who suffered from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is as high as 67%, while 10-year success rate is slightly lower, and amounts to 55%.

Before And After

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a life-threatening disease. Even if there are some risks and side effects of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment, these are acceptable if chemotherapy, radiation therapy or another type of medical procedure will be successful in fighting with this dangerous disease.

Faq

What Is a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer attacking lymphatic system. In it, T and b-cells are mutating in an abnormal way and start causing a threat to your body.

What Are the Most Popular Methods of Treating the Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

To most popular methods of fighting the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma belong chemotherapy and radiation therapy (both external and internal radiation therapy). However, throughout the years a range of other treatments as well as supporting treatments was developed, including immunotherapy and antibiotic therapy.

Is It a Good Idea to Undergo Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Treatment Abroad?

Assuming that you do not have a health insurance or it does not cover new non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma methods, it is definitely reasonable to search for treatment abroad. In this way, you can benefit from the difference in pricing (countries like Turkey and other popular health tourism destinations have much lower costs of medical treatments) while not resigning from high quality.
