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

Affordable and professional treatment

Fantastic!! Definitely recommend booking via flymedi, prices are affordable which isn’t the case where I live. So far everything’s running smoothly and any questions I’ve had have been answered honestly and promptly. very caring and professional towards your needs and no judgments

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 Breast Cancer Treatment

All patients with breast cancer symptoms and diagnosis are candidates for breast cancer treatment. However, for the patients with stage 4 breast cancer, sometimes it is recommended not to undergo chemotherapy or other cancer treatment since there are more disadvantages than advantages at the advanced stage.

Not Recommended For Breast Cancer Treatment

If the patient is suffering from breast cancer symptoms and is diagnosed by an oncologist, the patient is suitable for breast cancer treatment. However, the doctor would decide on the exact type of treatment.

It is up to breast cancer treatment type

Overview

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer that is experienced by female patients worldwide. Even though breast cancer awareness is increasing, still breast cancer is the reason for thousands of deaths. Just like in any other type of cancer, the probability of the treatment is depended on the breast cancer stages. Therefore, there is a continued effort that aims to increase breast cancer awareness.
Fortunately, for many female patients with symptoms of breast cancer, there are several treatment alternatives that include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. As medicine progress, these procedures become increasingly sophisticated and bring better outcomes in treating cancer.

Preparation

There is no certain preparation needed for both chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy. It is generally advised to undergo any scheduled medical procedures (such as a visit in dentist’s office) before deciding for them – during breast cancer treatment and for some time after it, it may be impossible to undergo other medical treatments. In the case of other types of treatment, such as breast cancer surgery, it is advised to talk to your oncologist to get suggestions about the proper preparation.

How It Is Performed

For patients with early stages of breast cancer, local, less invasive treatments are performed, such as radiation therapy and breast cancer surgery. Performing radiation therapy as a breast cancer treatment might require a few sessions while breast cancer surgery may be a one-time procedure. Still, it is subjected to cancer diagnosis and developments during and after the treatment.
For patients who are suffering from advanced stages of breast cancer, holistic procedures are performed. During chemotherapy treatment, drugs are injected into the patient’s body. However, during chemotherapy, healthy cells get harmed as well. Therefore there is a need for a long recovery period. Other alternative treatment methods include targeted therapy and hormone therapy, which harms the patient’s body less. Depending on the patient’s condition, these treatments may take one or several sessions.

Recovery

The recovery period of breast cancer treatment depends on the type of treatment performed. For instance, performing radiation therapy for breast cancer might be related to the recovery period that lasts for months because of the side effects of radiation. The patient might experience the effects of chemotherapy treatment for years, but most of the time, patients return to their regular life during the first months of the recovery process.

Risks

Even though all kinds of breast cancer treatments involve certain risks and complications, these are not very significant since breast cancer treatment’s main goal is to save the patient’s life. However, breast cancer treatment risks involve damage to vital organs such as lungs or liver as well as paint, either real or phantom (in the case of performed breast cancer surgery – mastectomy).

Side Effects

Breast cancer treatment methods cause some side effects to the patient. Chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy have several side effects that include:
• Chronic pain – abdominal, joint, chest, breast, and other places
• General weakness
• Damage to organs and probable complications associated with this situation
• Sweating
• Swelling
• Vomiting

Success Rates

As medicine progresses, the results of breast cancer treatment improve. It was found that the 5-year survival rate of breast cancer treatment is at 89% while the 10-year survival rate is around 83%, and the 15-year survival rate is around 78%.

Before And After

e patients who are suffering from breast cancer and had breast cancer treatment experiences changes in their lives. The patients might experience the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation treatment, or targeted therapy for months or years. Also, it is possible that the patient’s general life quality might never be as good as it was before cancer treatment. Additionally, the patients who had breast cancer surgery might experience problems with social stigma associated with mastectomy. However, rising awareness of breast cancer makes this problem increasingly irrelevant.t.

Faq

Which Treatment is the Best for Breast Cancer?
There is no certain answer for “the best” breast cancer treatment. The type of breast cancer therapy depends on cancer diagnosis, stage of breast cancer as well as patient’s condition. Therefore, the doctor might recommend breast cancer surgery for a patient and chemotherapy treatment for another.

Is there such a Thing as Male Breast Cancer?
Yes. Even though it is thought that breast cancer is a female disease, male patients can also suffer from it. Yet, many patients who are suffering from breast cancer treatment are females.

Aren’t Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy MoreDamaging than Breast Cancer?
Even though, there are several severe side effects of radiation therapy or chemotherapy treatment, it is not worth risking your life to avoid them.
