Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

Overview

CT scan is a very common medical procedure that is used to identify injuries and diseases.CT stands for Computed Tomography and is comprised of numerous X-ray photographs compiled together in order to give a detailed picture of one’s body or body part. CT scan is one of the main techniques to identify tumors and injuries, but it is not a recommended procedure for healthy patients just to look for undiagnosed medical conditions. Usually, the CT scan with contrast is performed to recognize better the anomalies. The most common types of CT scan are: 
• Abdominal CT scan 
• Heart CT scan • CT scan of the brain

Preparation

Before the procedure, you should inform your doctor about your medical conditions as well as the allergies you are suffering from(usually the CT scan with contrast is performed – a dye may cause allergy). Before the CT scan, you need to fast for several hours so that a dye can be used to improve the quality of the CT. Lastly, before entering the CT scanner, you need to take away all the metal objects in your body, such as jewelry. During the procedure, wearing a gown might be required.

How It Is Performed

CT scan procedure is a very short medical procedure. Patients would be lying on the CT scanner’s examination table as the dye is given to them either in the form of a pill or injection (unless the patient is allergic to the dye). Sedatives would be given to the patients who experience anxiety or those who have trouble staying still, including younger children. After that, the patient needs to stay still as the CT scan is being performed. When the procedure is completed, the patient can leave the hospital.

Recovery

CT scan procedure does not require a recovery period. After the procedure, you can leave the hospital and continue your daily routine.

Risks

Even though the CT scan machine involves a small dose of radiation, there is no enough proof for stating that it causes any complications regarding the radiation. However, it is not suggested for pregnant women to have a CT scan.Some people may have an allergy to the dye used in a CAT scan, but this is usually ruled out before the procedure.

Side Effects

CT scan procedure has no known side effects. It is thought to be a very safe medical procedure.

Success Rates

CT scan is a very common medical procedure because of its benefits like identifying tumors in addition to injuries caused by accidents

Before And After

Because of the CT scan, doctors can identify the medical problems patients are suffering from, and they can come up with a treatment plan accordingly.
