(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Recommended For Ovarian Cancer Treatment

It has been long believed that there is no such a thing as ovarian cancer symptoms. However, in recent years doctors and patients agree that there are clear signs of ovarian cancer which should catch our attention, such as:

• Constant bloating

• Abdominal or pelvic pain

• Feeling full right after eating

• More frequent urge to go to the toilet

As we see, symptoms of ovarian cancer may be confused with other medical conditions such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). However, it is better to consult your gynaecologist or oncologist before ruling out the possibility of ovarian cancer. It is highly advised especially to women, who have a history of ovarian cancer running in the family.

Not Recommended For Ovarian Cancer Treatment

Most patients are able to undergo ovarian cancer treatment. Nevertheless, some medical conditions or general state of health of a patient may deem treatment of cancer impossible. Additionally, a late ovarian cancer diagnosis may mean that standard treatment is not possible or effective anymore. Especially patients with stage 4 ovarian cancer will be treated with palliative methods rather than operation or chemotherapy treatment.

Overview

Ovarian cancer is cancer which attacks ovaries. While it is most common among women after menopause, it can also affect younger patients. Ovarian cancer affects tens of thousands of patients every year but the development of ovarian cancer treatment methods leads to increase survival rate. Many women decide to have their treatment for ovarian cancer abroad, especially if they have to fund it on their own.

Preparation

Preparation for ovarian cancer treatment starts with informing your oncologist about your medical history and giving a list of all medications you take. As for ovarian cancer surgery, it is important to stop smoking for some weeks before it. You will be given a list of breath and leg exercises which aim at preventing lung infection as well as forming of blood clots. Finally, you will be asked to fast for up to 6 hours before your surgery for ovarian cancer.

As for chemotherapy treatment, there is no fixed preparation. However, it is better to have all other medical procedures such as dental treatments done before starting chemotherapy.

How It Is Performed

Especially in early stages, ovarian cancer treatment has two key elements:

• Ovarian cancer surgery – it aims at resection of as much of cancer cells as possible. Since cancer spreads outside of ovaries themselves, in general, a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is performed, which means removal of one’s womb, cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. However, other types of hysterectomy may be taken into consideration.

• Chemotherapy treatment for ovarian cancer – chemotherapy follows the surgery for ovarian cancer and aims at killing all cancer cells left in patient’s body. Chemotherapy treatment is a cancer treatment utilising highly effective drugs injected into one’s blood circulation or swallowed in a form of a pill.

Recovery

Recovery from ovarian cancer surgery may take several weeks (4-6 weeks on average). For the first few days, you will stay at a hospital. You will have a drain in order to remove fluid from the site of your surgery as well as a catheter to urinate. After a few days, you will be allowed to go home. While a reasonable amount of movement is allowed and even encouraged, do not try to make heavy works for the first few weeks after surgery for ovarian cancer.

As for chemotherapy treatment which follows ovarian cancer surgery, it may make you feel weak and exhausted. It is advised to have a healthy diet and exercise within one’s capability. There will be also some long-lasting side effects of chemotherapy.

Risks

Risks of ovarian cancer surgery involve:

• Damage to other organs such as bowels, bladder.

• Infection.

• Internal bleeding.

As for chemotherapy treatment risks, these are:

• Damage to lungs

• Problems with kidneys

• Neurological problems

• Secondary cancer risk

Side Effects

To main side effects of ovarian cancer treatment belongs infertility. Additionally, there are side effects of chemotherapy treatment such as nausea, a feeling of tiredness and weakness, problems with the digestive system and loss of appetite. However, these does not appear in every patient with the same intensity.

Success Rates

Ovarian cancer survival rate is quite high as compared to other types of cancer. 46% of patients who underwent ovarian cancer treatment live more than 5 years and these results are growing as the time passes.

Faq

Is there a Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer Treatment?

All cases of ovarian cancer are individual, the eventual success of treatment for ovarian cancer depends both on stages of ovarian cancer as well as on the age and general condition of a patient. For this reason, it is better to consult your oncologist.


Why Isn’t a Radiation Treatment Used in Treatment for Ovarian Cancer?

After many trials oncologists came to a consensus that radiation treatment is not very effective in treating ovarian cancer. However, it is used in fighting cancer of other types.


What are the Causes of Ovarian Cancer?

It is still not totally established. Family history seems to be of significance, other causes of ovarian cancer remain unknown.
