Verified review. The patient was treated of breast cancer in Medipol Mega University Hospital

From visiting the clinic and undergoing examination were only negative impressions. Appointed to the doctor for 10 days at a certain time, and got an hour later! All tests were taken promptly, in 1 day and promised the results and a visit to the doctor in 2-3 days (the doctor himself said that everything needs to be done very quickly, because I needed urgent treatment), and silence .... Irada I didn’t answer calls ... We only got contact with the help of Bookimed employees! In general, we got to the doctor only after a week, and we were told that we needed to do another examination !!! (remembered) In general, we lost time in vain, which is very important for cancer patients, nerves and money ... Many thanks to the girls from Bookimed for support, help and patience Ie !!! I am grateful to Katerina, Daria, Olga and Darina for the help and support !!! I do not recommend Medipole. I am undergoing treatment in another clinic! От посещения клиники и прохождения обследования остались лишь негативные впечатления. Записывались к доктору за 10 дней на определённое время, а попали на час позже! Все анализы взяли оперативно , за 1 день и пообещали результаты и визит к доктору через 2- 3 дня ( доктор сам сказал, что нужно всё сделать очень быстро, т.к. я нуждалась в срочном лечении), и тишина.... Ирада не отвечала на звонки...Добились общения с ней только с помощью сотрудников Букимед!В общем, попали к доктору только через неделю, и нам сообщили, что нужно сделать ещё одно обследование!!!( вспомнили) В общем, потеряли зря время, которое очень важно для онкобольных, нервы и деньги... Огромное спасибо девочкам из Букимед за поддержку, помощь и терпение!!! Благодарна Катерине, Дарье, Ольге и Дарине за оказанную помощь и поддержку!!!
Медиполь не рекомендую. Прохожу лечение в другой клинике!

Verified review. The patient was treated of cholelitiasis in Medipol Mega University Hospital

In short, I did not get an individual approach that was agreed upon. Остался не доволен сервисом который предоставил букмед, долгие ожидания на консультациях,и не получил ожидаемого результата по моей проблеме. Доктор приятный в общение, но не углубился в суть проблемы с которой я обратился, соответственно я не услышал ничего нового. Перед поездкой я обсуждал с координатором суть моей проблемы и просил индивидуального подхода. В результате считаю, что зря потратил время и деньги.

Хотелось бы выделить и поблагодарить переводчика Тимура. Проявил себя с очень хорошей стороны.
Отдельное большое спасибо!

FAQ about Mastectomy

Mastectomy is a radical treatment for breast cancer.

Unlike lumpectomy (tumor removal), mastectomy involves resection of the entire breast.

Indications for total breast removal:

  • a malignant tumor in the breast is large,
  • the tumor cannot be removed from one incision, since there are several foci.

Also, during a mastectomy, regional (axillary) lymph nodes are removed.

Types of mastectomy

  • according to Halsted (removal of pectoralis major and minor muscles and axillary tissue);
  • according to Urban (removal of pectoralis major and minor muscles, axillary tissue and lymph nodes);
  • according to Patty (removal of the mammary gland and pectoralis minor muscle);
  • according to Madden (removal of the gland with preservation of the pectoral muscles).

Benefits of mastectomy:

Disadvantages of breast removal

  • breast loss;
  • longer recovery period after surgery.

Side effects of mastectomy

  • side effects of general anesthesia (dizziness, headache, confusion, nausea, etc.);
  • bleeding;
  • infection;
  • lymphedema.

Lymphedema is swelling of the extremities caused by stagnation of lymph after removal of the lymph node.

Edema can develop immediately after surgery, and after a fairly long time.

Lymph stasis is characterized by:

  • swelling of the limbs, a feeling of heaviness in them:
  • decreased flexibility in the arms and legs;

If you see signs of lymphedema, be sure to tell your doctor about them.
