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 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.
