Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

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

Recommended For Ovarian Cyst Removal

Ovarian cyst symptoms are similar to ovarian cancer symptoms, which involve:

• Pelvic pain (also during intercourse) 

• Bloating, nausea 

• Feeling full 

• Problems with bowel movements and urinating 

Patients who think they have the aforementioned symptoms should reach to their doctor to find the reason for their symptoms. 

Not Recommended For Ovarian Cyst Removal

Many women who have ovarian cysts are able to have an operation. Even though some of the pregnant patients worry about undergoing ovarian cyst removal, it is known that laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy causes no harm to pregnant patients. Yet other medical problems should be taken into consideration before applying the treatment, since some of the conditions may block this process. 

Overview

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs which are located on one of the ovaries. There are different types of ovarian cysts; some of them cause no harm, while others can lead to important health issues such as ovarian cancer. Therefore, doctors examine your ovarian cyst carefully in order to decide if your cyst needs to be removed or not. Recently, the number of patients who are willing to have an ovarian cyst removal abroad increased because of the affordable prices and to enjoy the recovery in a new environment. As for what causes ovarian cysts, there are two main reasons. Functional, or non-threatening ovarian cysts, are created follicle protecting the eggs and appear naturally. However, ovarian cysts which progress from cancer cells may lead to damage and can be life-threatening. Also, ovarian cysts can be caused by another medical issue, for example, endometriosis.

Preparation

Initially, you should inform your doctor about your medical condition and the medicines you are using. Your doctor may ask you to stop taking medicines with blood-thinner qualities such as aspirin since it may cause extensive bleeding after the operation. Also, before the operation, you should fast for several hours, and it may be needed to have a mechanical bowel preparation. 

How It Is Performed

Ovarian cyst removal operation can be performed in two different ways:

• Laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal surgery– In this method, several small incisions are made by a medical tool called laparoscope. Surgeons perform the operation and the removal through these incisions. 

• Laparotomy for ovarian cyst – This operation is performed by making a big cut where the cyst located, and surgeons remove it through this cut.

Sometimes, the removal of ovaries is deemed necessary. Additionally, if a cyst is a sign of ovarian cancer, further resection may be conducted, involving hysterectomy surgery.

Recovery

Ovarian cyst removal recovery period varies depending on the kind of the operation. Patients who had laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal surgery are mostly able to leave the hospital after the operation day while patients who had laparotomy needs stay a little longer. Recovery time from laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal surgery is 2 weeks while it is 6-8 weeks for laparotomy

Scars After Surgery

After the laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy or laparoscopic ovary removal, there might be small scars which are hardly seen. However, laparotomy leaves bigger and more visible scars after the operation. 

Risks

There might be some risks and complications regarding the ovarian cyst removal such as internal bleeding, infection, and damage to bowels or bladder.

Side Effects

If the treatment involves the removal of the ovaries, then it may result in infertility or lower fertility.

Success Rates

Ovarian cyst treatment has proven to be a successful one, with more than 90% healed thanks to ovarian cyst removal and not experiencing any complications.

Faq

When Treatment of Ovarian Cyst Requires Removal of Ovaries? 

If the doctors diagnose you with ovarian cancer, then it might be necessary to remove the ovaries.

 

When Do Doctors Decide for Laparotomy instead of Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy? 

Laparotomy might be required when it is not possible to remove a big-sized ovarian cyst with a laparoscope.

 

Is an Ovarian Cyst always a Reason for a Cyst Removal Surgery? 

Absolutely not. If the cyst does not involve ovarian cancer indications, then most probably it would dissolve naturally without any medical intervention. That's why doctors prefer to wait for some time before deciding about ovarian cyst surgery.
