I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Recommended For Pancreatic Cancer Treatment

Pancreatic cancer symptoms are initially hard to catch. They become distinguishable only in the later stages of pancreatic cancer when it is often too late to completely treat it. The early signs, easily confused with other medical conditions, include:

• Weight loss higher than expected

• The yellow colour of the skin and eyes.

• Pain, usually located in the back and around the stomach

New pancreatic cancer symptoms, after it reaches next stages, include:

• Fever

• Formation of blood clots

• Symptoms of diabetes

• Vomiting, nausea

Pancreatic cancer is usually detected through CT scan or MRI scan and diagnosed by biopsy.

Not Recommended For Pancreatic Cancer Treatment
Patients may not be able to undergo treatment for pancreatic cancer due to other medical conditions, bad state of health or due to its advanced stage. However, the decision about a pancreatic cancer treatment will be taken by a medical team after taking all factors into consideration.
Discharge From Hospital
Up to a case and a type of treatment / 3-10 days for a pancreatic cancer surgery
Overview

Pancreatic cancer is a type of cancer developing in the pancreas, a large gland connected to the digestive system. Due to the lack of clear signs of pancreatic cancer throughout first stages, it is one of the most difficult cancer types when it comes to effective treatment. There are two types of cancer which can develop in one’s pancreas:

• Exocrine pancreatic cancer – concerning patient’s exocrine gland. This type usually attacks ducts located in pancreas or cells producing pancreatic enzymes.

• Endocrine pancreatic cancer – it starts in hormone-producing cells in the pancreas and is much less common.

Pancreatic cancer treatment may take many forms depending on its stage and the patient’s condition, including chemotherapy treatment, radiation therapy, cancer surgery and targeted therapy.

Preparation

Since there are many types of treatment for pancreatic cancer, your preparation may take various forms. Initially, you should inform your medical team about your health, possible medical conditions, as well as produce a list of all medication you take.

• For pancreatic cancer surgery, you will have to undergo some tests. Additionally, you will be asked to fast for several hours before this type of pancreatic cancer treatment.

• Chemotherapy and radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer – they do not include preparation apart from organising transport to and from your hospital as well as undergoing all other medical procedures before starting these treatments since it will not be possible during and for some time after your sessions.

How It Is Performed

Pancreatic cancer treatment has many faces, depending on stages of cancer as well as patient’s condition. Treatment for pancreatic cancer may take the form of:

• Pancreatic cancer surgery. This includes so-called Whipple procedure (removal of the head of one’s pancreas union distal pancreatectomy (the tail and body of one’s pancreas are resected union and total pancreatectomy (total removal of one’s pancreas). All of these procedures are quite long and require a good overall state of health. Additionally, pancreatic cancer surgery is usually not available in later stages of pancreatic cancer, from stage 3 pancreatic cancer up.

• Chemotherapy treatment – chemotherapy involves heavy doses of drugs which aim at killing possibly high numbers of cancer cells. Chemotherapy treatment is conducted in sessions and may take weeks or even months to complete.

• Radiation therapy – Radiation therapy utilizes radiation for the purpose of destroying the pancreatic cancer cells. There are two types of radiotherapy – external radiation therapy (radiation is emitted by a machine) and internal radiation therapy (radioactive elements are injected or swallowed as a pill).

• Targeted therapy – Targeted therapy is a new generation of treatment for pancreatic cancer. With targeted therapy, your oncologist and the medical team try to destroy cancer cells by disrupting their biology, without harming other cells.

Recovery

Pancreatic cancer treatment recovery depends on the type of it. As for pancreatic cancer surgery, patients will experience problems with digesting food, especially during first days. As the time passes, this problem should disappear. Pain experienced after surgery will be minimalised with medications.

As for chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy, their negative effects may last for weeks, months or even years after pancreatic cancer treatment.

Risks

Pancreatic cancer treatment may cause risks which are worth thinking about. In the case of surgery for pancreatic cancer, these are:

• Leak from connection between bowel, liver, and pancreas – so-called anastomotic leak

• Bleeding.

• Infections.

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy also may cause some complications, including:

• Damage to lung tissue

• Damage to other vital organs

• Neurological problems

Side Effects

Pancreatic cancer treatment side effects are numerous and include:

• Problems with digestive system

• Memory and concentration issues

• Hair loss

• Feeling of weakness and tiredness

Success Rates
Pancreatic cancer is one of the hardest to fight with and it is visible in pancreatic cancer survival rate, which is 20% for 1-year survival and 7% for 5-year survival. However, as the medicine develops, pancreatic cancer prognosis brings more and more positive results.
