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.

Recommended For Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment

To the most common symptoms of Hodgkin’s lymphoma belong swollen lymph nodes, problems with appetite or even a weight loss. Apart from them, a person suffering from Hodgkin’s lymphoma will most probably experience night sweats as well as an itchy skin. However, there is no way to make a diagnosis other than a biopsy.

Not Recommended For Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment

Some patients with other diseases or very late stages of Hodgkin’s lymphoma may not be able to undergo the lymphoma treatment including chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy. However, this is left to the discretion of patient’s doctor.

Duration Of Operation

Up to one hour

Overview

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is one type of blood cancer. It is also called as B-cell lymphoma since unlike non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma it is developing only in white cells type B. Previously known as Hodgkin’s disease, this lymph node cancer is a well-studied disease with a great chance of being treated and eradicated if it is discovered at early stages. Statistically, Hodgkin’s lymphoma is much less common than non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma but still every year thousands of patients are diagnosed with it. Unlike the other types of cancer, this one is usually not treated by a surgery but only by chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Preparation

There is no specific preparation for Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment. Both chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy do not require patients to undergo a certain preparation routine. However, it is better to inform your oncologist about other medical conditions you suffer from and medications you take. In this way, your lymphoma treatment will be tailored according to your needs and possibilities. It is also worth taking under consideration to undergo other medical treatments before starting your chemotherapy.

How It Is Performed

Since Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a lymph nodes cancer, surgery is not performed as a part of lymphoma treatment. Instead, oncologists focus on effective chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy as means to eradicate this cancer.

• Chemotherapy treatment involves the use of drugs, which destroy cancer cells. There are many types of such drugs; the choice is left to your oncologist with regard for the exact type of your Hodgkin’s lymphoma as well as your overall medical condition.

• Radiation therapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma may be of two types. In external radiation therapy, radiation is emitted by a special machine – cancer cells are bombarded from the outside. In internal radiation therapy, radioactive material is injected into patient’s bloodstream in order to destroy large B-cells causing Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Both of these treatments are rather short but there are several sessions of them, their exact number depending on patient’s situation and the stage of Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Recovery

Chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy, while very successful in fighting Hodgkin’s lymphoma as well as other types of cancer such as non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas, can be destructive to patient’s body. Many side effects of these lymphoma treatments may continue for months or even years. Still, their high effectiveness against Hodgkin’s lymphoma makes them primary methods of struggling with this lymph nodes cancer.

Risks

There are certain risks connected with Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy may cause secondary cancers in the long run, such as breast cancer or lung cancer. However, this does not have to be the case with every patient. Additionally, Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivors are generally advised to do routine check-ups so secondary cancer should be detected in early stage. Another common complication related to chemotherapy and radiation therapy is infertility.

Side Effects

Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment’s side effects include:

• General weakness, tiredness

• Memory problems

• Weakened immune system

• Bleeding

and many others. There are various side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which may vary from person to person.

Success Rates

Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment, in contrary to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment, has a high success rate, estimated at 85%. That is because it is a well-known disease, attacking only B-type lymphocytes.

Faq

What is the Difference between Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a B-cell lymphoma, which means that only B-type lymphocytes are changing. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is just a category, in which there are many different types of blood cancers, B-cell as well as T-cell lymphomas. Additionally, Hodgkin’s lymphoma is usually concentrated in lymph nodes (hence lymph nodes cancer) while non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas may appear in different locations. Finally, it is easier to spot a Hodgkin’s lymphoma rather than non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas due to well-known symptoms.


Is Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy the only Treatment?

While there are other Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatments in development, chemotherapy combined with radiation therapy are thought to be the most effective ones so far.


Are Stages of Lymphoma Important?

Of course. As in other types of cancer, in the case of Hodgkin’s lymphoma the more advanced stages of lymphoma, the smaller is the chance of surviving this cancer. For this reason, it is advised to pay attention to Hodgkin’s lymphoma symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes and night sweats.
