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.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Recommended For Soft Tissue Sarcoma Treatment

Under the group of soft tissue sarcoma, there are several kinds of cancer with different origins and techniques for fighting them that involve:
• leiomyosarcoma
• liposarcoma
• synovial sarcoma
• fibrosarcoma
• Ewing’s sarcoma
The most common soft tissue sarcoma symptoms involve lumps that are easily felt when a sarcoma grows in legs or arms. Also, soft tissue sarcomas that are in the abdomen are generally unnoticed until they develop signs or cause other sarcoma symptoms such as internal bleeding or abdominal pain, that can be mistaken for other medical conditions as well.

Not Recommended For Soft Tissue Sarcoma Treatment

Some of the patients who are suffering from late-stage soft tissue sarcoma cancer might not be suitable for sarcoma treatment other than palliative one, which aims to ease the pain rather than curing the patient. Also, other medical problems the patient has can affect the variety of soft tissue sarcoma treatment or can even terminate the process due to the patient’s overall bad state.

Overview

Soft tissue sarcomais a type of cancer that involves a group of sarcoma cancer types that grow from soft tissue such as fat, muscles, blood vessels, etc. Other types of sarcoma develop from bones. As for sarcoma and carcinoma differentiation, sarcomas usually have a spherical shape and do not spread to lymphatic nodes and other organs as easily as carcinomas. Therefore, they are relatively easier to eliminate cancer surgery.
Soft tissue sarcoma treatment can be performed in different ways, including sarcoma surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, in addition to the novel, experimental therapies, aiming cancer cells directly. 

Preparation

The patients should inform their doctors about the medical conditions they have as well as medications taken for them. This way, an appropriate sarcoma treatment can be planned for the patient.
Depending on the area affected by soft tissue sarcoma, the preparation for sarcoma surgery differs. If the patient has soft tissue sarcoma in limbs, then generally fewer preparations would be needed. In abdominal sarcoma, the patient is asked to fast for several hours before the operation.
If the patient’s soft tissue sarcoma treatment includes chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, it is recommended to undergo other prearranged medical procedures before their first treatment session, since these treatments’ side effects can interfere with other procedures.

How It Is Performed

Sarcoma treatment may be performed in many ways, such as:
• Soft tissue sarcoma surgery – Especially in earlier stages of sarcoma, the surgeons might attempt to cut out cancerous tissues. Occasionally, this procedure might involve the amputation of the affected limb as well.
• Chemotherapy – During chemotherapy, strong drugs are used to fight cancer cells
• Radiation therapy – in this procedure, radiation is used to eliminate cancer cells. It can be performed as external radiation therapy (radiation is generated by a machine) or internal radiation therapy (radioactive elements are given to the patient by injection)
• Biologic therapy – In this treatment type, new generations of drugs are used to fight cancer cells in a more precise way.

Recovery

Depending on the treatment type used for sarcoma and the area treated the soft tissue sarcoma treatment recovery period changes. The patient may be required to stay in the hospital for a few days after the sarcoma operation. Also, the side effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy might last for a longer time, sometimes even for years.

Risks

Just like in any other type of cancer treatment, sometimes soft cell sarcoma treatment causes some complications as well, such as:
• Bleeding and problems with closing the wound
• Damage to lungs
• Problems with organs such as heart or kidney
• Neurological problems

Side Effects

If the patient’s soft tissue sarcoma surgery involves limb amputation process, then the patient must get used to living with a prosthesis. Also, chemotherapy and radiation therapy might cause some side effects, including:
• a general feeling of weakness and tiredness
• Problems with memory and concentration 
• Difficulties with the digestive system 

Success Rates

Thesurvival rate of 5-year soft tissue sarcoma is high, reaching 83% for sarcomas that are early-diagnosed and 16% for later stages. However, more than half of all soft tissue sarcomas are detected in the early stages, and these results become better and better as time passes.
