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 Blastoma Treatment

As we saw above, some kinds of blastoma are more difficult to detect than others and can be mistaken for other illnesses easily. Because of that, parents should take care of to the medical issues of their child and not disregard common symptoms at all, for instance, a cough unless likely to deal it with normal medicines. That is because, in late stages, the chance of assisting the patient is very limited and at times the single choice that is promising is palliative care.

Overview

Blastoma is a type of cancer acting on commonly named precursor cells (or blasts). Glioblastoma, neuroblastoma, pleuropulmonary blastoma, and retinoblastoma are some of the blastoma kinds. Blastoma saw particularly in children because it is an illness associated with growth. Blastoma is a broad term; diverse blastoma kinds act on lungs, eyes, or brain. That's why cancer treatment of a blastoma may be in diverse ways, relying upon the area and stages of cancer.



Kinds of Blastoma
• Glioblastoma regarded as the toughest to struggle with between all brain cancers. Symptoms involve memory difficulties, aggression, lack of criticism and changes in personality.


• Neuroblastoma acts on nerves, particularly in younger children. Symptoms of neuroblastoma are difficulties in breathing and swallowing, difficulties associated with proper urination, energy loss and others.
• Retinoblastoma is a blastoma growing in one’s eye. In several instances, retinoblastoma is inherited, whereas in others it is associated with a mutation in one of the chromosomes.
• Pleuropulmonary Blastoma develops in the lungs or pleural cavity. Pleuropulmonary blastoma generally emerges as secondary cancer in children but likewise in adults. Among Pleuropulmonary blastoma are difficulties with breathing, chest pain and shortness of breath.
Some other blastoma cancer instances are ameloblastoma, nephroblastoma, hepatoblastoma, and others.

Preparation

Your medical team should be informed concerning your medical history and medications, in order for them to plan you a safe treatment and not use drugs that can do harm to you. Supposing that your treatment of blastoma will be a surgery, you should fast for a couple of hours before the surgery and comply with other instructions set by specialists. As for chemotherapy and radiation therapy, they do not need any special preparation.

How It Is Performed

The decision of the treatment option relies upon the stage of the cancer. For instance, if a patient has stage 4 glioblastoma, a glioblastoma multiforme surgery cannot be performed. All options for blastoma treatment are:
• For early blastoma cancer stages, a surgery is generally an ideal decision. Specialists generally carry out glioblastoma multiforme surgery, neuroblastoma surgery and resection for other blastoma kinds.
•In order to support surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are generally used. In chemotherapy, powerful medications used to destroy cancer cells, whereas in radiation therapy radioactive elements are used for the similar intentions.
• Other kinds of blastoma cancer treatment comprise immunotherapy which purposes to strengthen the patient’s immune system, and targeted therapy.

Recovery

Blastoma treatment, particularly with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, may last months and the recovery period can be even longer, such as, years. For surgery, it relies upon the treated place – for all kinds of blastoma, the recovery period is differing, for instance, for glioblastoma surgery and retinoblastoma treatment.

Risks

Blastoma cancer treatment may cause numerous complications, including the damage to internal organs, bleeding and infections. Additionally, chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause neurological problems or even infertility.

Side Effects

Particularly chemotherapy and radiation therapy may result in numerous side effects. These comprise:
• Memory and concentration issues
• Hair loss
• Weight loss
• Nausea, vomiting

Success Rates

As blastoma is a broad category, we cannot say a standardized success rate. We should look for specific blastoma kinds. For instance, survival rate of glioblastoma is 15-16 months for 50% of the patients. Whereas, 5-year survival rate of neuroblastoma is as high as 80%.

Faq

Blastoma kinds consist of glioblastoma, neuroblastoma, nephroblastoma, ameloblastoma, retinoblastoma and pleuropulmonary blastoma.
