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.

Recommended For Prostate Cancer Treatment

Age and genetics are between the primary factors of this form of cancer but nobody can establish the exact causes. Unfortunately there are no symptoms in the early stages of prostate cancer and most men find out about it through a routine consultation or check-up.

Some of the symptoms (when they exist) are:

• The patient needs to urinate more often (also during the night);

• Difficulties to start urinating;

• Pain or mild pain at urination;

• Blood presence in urine;

• Difficulties in achieving or maintaining an ejaculation.

Prostate cancer usually affects men over the age of 50. A prostate cancer treatment is recommended for any patient that was diagnosed with cancer or with cancer tissue detected. The form of therapy will be different depending on the diagnosis.

Not Recommended For Prostate Cancer Treatment

Men who don’t suffer from any form of prostate cancer and with no cancer tissue or symptoms detected are not suitable for this treatment.

Overview

Prostate cancer treatment as the name shows is a treatment for a disease which affects men only and is among the most common forms of cancer in men. A treatment for prostate cancer can be a very complex process and it can involve a combination of multiple therapies like: active surveillance, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, cryosurgery, etc.

Before starting a prostate cancer treatment it is important to know the stage of the disease and the tumor’s size. This information helps the physician in establishing the right form of therapy and prognosis.

Preparation

There are risks associated with every cancer treatment that involves radiations, chemotherapy or surgery. Before starting any procedure, it is crucial that the tumor is graded properly by the pathologist, because this will determine what type of treatment should be recommended.

A very important aspect of preparation is a proper hydration. It is recommended to drink around 1, 5 liters of water per day before and during the treatment.

The preparation process depends on the form of therapy chosen for the patient. For instance chemotherapy can affect a prostate cancer patient’s long term fertility. The doctor should be able to provide with all the necessary advice regarding the preparation. Some patients may need psychological therapy to help them in the process.

How It Is Performed

Treatments are applied depending on the stage of the disease. For early stage prostate cancer (when the tumor is small and localized) there are several prostate cancer treatment options:

• Radical prostatectomy – when the prostate is surgically completely removed;

• Conformal radiotherapy – the radiations are only applied on the organ that needs treatment, minimizing the exposure of healthy tissue to radiation;

• Watchful waiting or active surveillance – involves the constant monitoring of PSA blood levels;

• Brachytherapy – the prostate will be treated with radioactive seeds.


For more advanced stages of prostate cancer, the recommended treatments may be:

• Combination of radiotherapy and hormone therapy – requires a daily radiotherapy treatment for a period that can go up to 8 weeks;

• Hormone therapy – it helps slowing down and even completely stopping the cancer cells from growing;

• Radical prostatectomy – when the prostate is surgically completely removed;

• Traditional surgery – it requires a long hospital stay and a recovery period that can go up to 3 months;

• Radioactive injections – an injection with a radioactive substance that targets the tumor and can extend the life of a prostate cancer patient.

Recovery

The recovery period also depends on the type of prostate cancer treatment. The doctor should be able to provide this information taking into consideration the treatment’s results that may be different from patient to patient.

Risks

Possible risks and complications of prostate cancer treatments are:

• Incontinence;

• Long-term infertility;

• Metastasis;

• Metabolic factors;

• Erectile dysfunction.

Side Effects

• Long term fertility is affected

• Stress

• Incontinence

Success Rates

The survival rates of prostate cancer are relative but there is a very high percentage of men diagnosed with common types of prostate cancer who will survive more than 5 years after the diagnosis.

Before And After

Certain cancer treatments and surgeries can affect a male’s long term fertility and it is very important for them to be advised on the benefits of sperm banking.

It is also crucial to know that if the disease is detected in early stages, the patients can beneficiate from curative treatments.

Faq

Can I have a sexual life after a prostate cancer treatment?

Erectile dysfunction after a prostate removal is very possible but during the surgery the doctors will try to preserve the sexual function. The results are also affected by factors like age, health condition and the patient’s ability to have an erection before the treatment.


How can I prevent prostate cancer?

You can improve your chances by maintaining a healthy diet and a healthy weight.


How long is the recovery period?

Depending on the patient’s overall health and organism, treatment and cancer’s stage it can last between a couple of weeks up to a couple of months.
