Hello everyone, thank you very much Doctor Erkam. I want to share a few things about how it works. My bald area was not much. 3000 grafts were implanted. My friend was said to need around 5500 or even 6000 grafts. However, since the donor area is not very good, it is said that around 5000 hair transplantation can be done. In addition, the results of those who do not have a good donor area and need a lot of hair transplantation may not be perfect and their hair may not grow well. It is stated that weak result can occur especially in the crown areas of the head. Such a situation was possible for those who need more grafts and for those with weak / thin hair. Therefore, if you want to have nice results on the crown area of the head in the following years, it is useful to have a second session. Probably will do so in my friend. It has been one year since our operation and my results are fine. It is not perfect as I mentioned in my friend, but it is very satisfied. Especially important to accept very difficult cases in Turkey. Dr. Caymaz says that you first lay the foundation of the house so that you can build high-rise buildings on it. In other words, some areas of the patients who need hair transplantation with high graft count may be rare because not many hair follicles have been found or they have not been done since excessive grafting will harm. (over-harvesting) So let your probability of the second session be on one side. This is not the end of the Earth. Before the operation, they said that the cases that are said to be fully cover in 2 sessions were cover in 1 session, and the cases that were called as cover in 2 sessions were cover in 1 session. In other words, in order to say some things, I remember the information that the first session should be done in the best way without harming and at least 1 year should pass. I mean, your operations are done under the control of Dr. Caymaz and it really cares about the operation. His performs its operations according to the latest medical literature. He really accepts 1-2 operations per day and opens the hair channels with sapphire pen himself. The rest is up to your genetics and luck. Dr. Caymaz and his team will do your operation meticulously and send you home. I and my friend are very satisfied for now, but if you need too many grafts and your donor area is weak, you need a few sessions. Thanks.

I preferred Dr. Erkam CAYMAZ again, after which I could not go before the pandemic process and insisted later. I had to buy the plane ticket a few times. Let's come to the operation process. I especially preferred the DHI technique. Right or wrong is discussed. Mr. Enes said that Dr. Caymaz wanted to perform the operation with the Sapphire Fue technique. He said that he did not do all the cultivation in the DHI technique, especially in the frontal region, and that he only followed the operation. I accepted because I knew that even Dr. Caymaz would follow me in the operation and he would give me confidence. It really happened. Dr. Caymaz said that he was really nice at the end of the operation, it made me happy. I don't know what it would be like with Sapphire Fue. According to Dr. Erkam, two techniques, especially those who need 2000-3000 grafts, can be done without shaving. But they definitely shaved the back of the head, the donor area, in both techniques. So I think the team is more important than the techniques. The fact that a real doctor is on the follow-up at the beginning of the operation gives people confidence. I have heard that in most famous clinics, the doctor did not stay at his head, because they cannot stay, because of which one of the 10-30 operations a day will they deal with? Dr.Erkam CAYMAZ really does 1-2 operations to me. And even after their own section are finished, they follow the operation from time to time. I am satisfied. The question mark in my mind is that if I chose the Sapphire Fue technique, I did not know, it would be wrong to speak correctly without seeing the results. Thank you.

I used Zeiring in Wandsworth London Dec 2016 paid £8000 for 2800 grafts Now jan 2018 most have fallen out I will be bald again with in months. Just had to pay another £5000 For 1100 grafts on crown as on the morning of first op I was convinced to by the doctor to use the 2800 for fuller frontal hair line and that the crown will only cost £2000 and crown could show more growth after first op I was given the proper sales spill and as was left stupid bald spot so I had to do it.but only 1 year down line it’s went from £2000 for £4500. They know I’m not happy I’ve paid for prp injections with this last transplant so all in I’ve wasted £13500 it’s fallin out Everyone I read who had it does not have permanent results The male baldness is a affect of the follicles thinning and dieing until no new growth My new hair had thinned already and falling out in lumps. Even had prp injection Think it’s all a scam

I have been going to Clear complexions Gungahlin for over 6 months now. I work outdoors everyday in the sun and I have had really bad skin for many years always used to red cheeks not very nice look I was not impressed to show it and very embarrassing for myself. No self confidence in myself, but going to Clear complexions from the first appointment to now there has been major improvement all my family and friends have noticed alot. Under the amazing guidance from Lisa and the amazing other nurses. Lisa has helped me through this amazing journey to get this far with my face. If you persist with the treatments and the ongoing creams everyday use the outcome is amazing with great support from my partner and family and the amazing team at clear complexions.

They charging almost double the market with the "reason" they got better and long lasting result and again it lasts me less than any other places i did the same treatment with. When I complained and asked them to find a solution they didn't show any care. In other word I felt that I've been cheated and my money been stolen..

One of the technicians in this clinic burnt my eyebrows and hair when doing my laser hair removal causing at lest half a inch of my front hair and eyebrow hair to fall out. When the manager was informed they said they won’t refund the money I had paid for my other treatments. And no one contacted me regarding this case until a month is gone by. When they did I was referred to all sorts of managers who never called me back and it has been almost 1 and a half months and this place still won’t refund my money I have paid for future treatments or have not contacted me regarding this matter. This place has the worst customer service and only care about getting thousands of dollars from their customers. Their technicians do not have enough experience to carry out their services. I would not recommend this place to a single person

Over 4 sessions paid, I've been treated for laser hair removal thoroughly only once. The machinery works wonders, but when you get back home with so many missing patches... well it's just not worth it. When [name removed] was so fast I was in and out in 8 minutes for full legs (and I'm not exactly short!), brazilian, perianal and underarms. She also never wore gloves while other therapists did. She was also squirmish around my brazilian and perianal which was treated with only one "click", making me feel very uncomfortable and uneasy. I thought it could be a one time thing, considering she was alone and she was running late for the following appointments. Trying to be understanding I didn't mention it at first but I could definitely see different results from one therapist to another. When I gently and in a very easy chatty way enquired about the speed of the treatment I was told that her favourite laser treatment was skin problems and she was just covering the shift. I left speechless and with still treatments to complete I am now looking for other Clinics because this is humiliating and not acceptable.

Here is a clinic I visited for a while even after a few accidental burns (in covered areas) as the manager is always really lovely and offered me several apologies, kind words and a free led treatment. Despite the fact she tried to sell me the Led package for an issue I never had until she burnt me , I never questioned the kind lady there but just politely refused. Recently a new staff employed here brutally burnt my entire neck and partial face (couldn't go to work for a week due to the pain) reminding me the most alarming fact that beauticians should never be handed a medical grade device despite their welcoming and kind nature. This staff was rude and rough but my point is in general beauticians do not understand the physics of optical light and end up either under dosing people (for repeat treatments) or bumping up the energy of a beam they don't understand/or not cleaning the device enough causing severe burns. If this was done to me by a stranger, they would be in jail. How are industries like these in this day and age allowed to openly burn customers (who are often quiet about it) is beyond me. Was told to go get some cortisoid creams and not report to the radiation health department due to our personal relationship. People need to know that in QLD a regulatory body known as radiation health "regulates" this laser industry and at the very least such unqualified people need to be reported to have their licences assessed. They also refused to return my money which I will have to go through the Ombudsman and tribunal courts. They will only return my money if I sign liabilities away. Not worth the hassle. Go to a professional clinic that understands lasers.

Terrible customer service, I bought a store voucher from someone via Facebook, I called the store to verify the voucher was indeed legitimate to which it was confirmed - yes it was and that the lady on the counter remembered the man who had returned his creams and got the store voucher. The voucher had approximately 10 months remaining until expiry so I put it aside with the intention to use before then. Im Currently unable to use the voucher and it was nearing its expiry so I gave it away, when asked to honour the voucher the receptionist took the voucher, wouldn’t honour it, said it’s not legitimate, said the voucher number exists in their system but only for $50 not $173, but still doesn’t even offer to Honour the $50 (which I wouldn’t have accepted anyway as the voucher is 100% legitimate as confirmed by them months ago and valued at $173). Although the receptionist was not rude, she was not helpful nor was she understanding of the fact that the voucher had been previously confirmed as legitimate. I will be taking this further and exploring all avenues to ensure this store doesn’t just put that $173 of value in their pockets. I can see from the reviews similar instances of monies not being refunded for cash only vouchers happening. Be very careful with this business, somethings not quite right. I will remove this negative review, from here and from all other platforms posted if I find a solution to this problem, so if your reading this it means it hasn’t been resolved and they didn’t honour their store voucher. As I’m the first to review this clinic here I would advise people to check other platforms for reviews about them as there are many from other unsatisfied customers over more than 2 years.

I did the 30minute treatment which they split into two 15 minute sessions. The guy was friendly but I was just sat into the chair without checking my teeth first or determining the colour pre-treatment. I was given something like a teeth guard with gel on it to put Into my mouth. The gel itself didn't hurt on my teeth - the blue light is coming from a rather flimsy looking arm and in case you move you have no idea if it's still pointing at your teeth or not. The protection glasses didn't look like they had been cleaned before and nobody explained why I needed them in the first place. Afterwards I was shown a mirror and to be honest I didn't see much of a difference but since the colour wasn't checked before it's easy to tell yourself they look whiter because after all you just spent 30 minutes and not a small amount of money to whiten them. They go straight on to selling you special tooth paste and a whitening pen to maintain results. Do yourself a favour and pass on this one. There was nothing to be gained and to me it's a huge scam. The experience I had was nothing like the little video on their website. It was a chair in the middle of a shopping mall. Not recommended. I've been looking at my teeth all day and they look exactly the same colour. Huge disappointment.

Revision Rhinoplasty - October 2018 I had a revision Rhinoplasty with Dr Sultan Hassan in October 2018. I'd previously had Rhinoplasty many years before which had unfortunately had left an open roof deformity. Obviously, due to this I was very nervous about embarking on a corrective surgery. Before my appointment I conducted lots of research and came across the excellent reviews for Mr Sultan. I was instantly comfortable when meeting Dr Sultan, who conducted an excellent consultation and even suggested alternatives to surgery (like fillers). Dr Sultan clearly explained the procedure and risks. I felt he gave a very balanced and informative appointment. I had my revision operation in October 2018, I'm very happy with the result and the care I received during and after surgery. I was previously very self conscious about my appearance, I now feel very happy with the way my "new" nose looks. If you're in need of a revision, as daunting as it is, I have no hesitation to recommend Dr Hassan. If I ever decide to embark on another cosmetic journey, I wouldn't entertain any other surgeon.

I had my rhinoplasty with Mr Sultan Hassan and I’m now fully healed but very unhappy with his work. I’ve been left with deformities and breathing difficulties in my nose, when I have discussed this with him he has been very dismissive and offered a revision by him for a ridiculously high price. I am now seeking a revision surgery from someone who actually knows what they are doing at further expense to me. Do not recommend elite.

undergone a hair transplant through Este medical Birmingham/Istanbul. Which was fantastic and very professional. My consultant was Sam, who is the director of the company. I met with Sam back in November 2019 to discuss my hair loss treatment. Sam was excellent and very professional and made me feel very comfortable. He explained to me about a 2 step process; firstly to stop the hair loss and secure the hair that I have currently and the second step was to go to Turkey Istanbul to carry out a hair transplant. The hair loss treatment was to attend Este medical group clinic 2x a week for laser regrowth. For several months and then to have review and see if have stopped the loss and if I am ready for my transplant. I was very fortunate that the treatment worked well for me and my hair loss dropped significantly and I actually started to notice my hair was feeling healthier and thicker. I met with Sam who then told me that he was very impressed with my progress and to move my hair Transplant time frame up. I booked my own tickets and visa and Sam sorted the rest out for me. A week before I was due to fly out I was messaged by Este medical group representative from Istanbul who explained everything about my entire journey from the transfers, hotel, pick to go to the clinic, procedure, and after care. This was very helpful and she helped answer any questions I had. I set out to Istanbul from Birmingham on my journey for my new hair! Once I arrived at Istanbul Airport (very impressive airport by the way) I was met by the hotel transfer organiser who waited for me at the agreed location he then took me to the hotel. The hotel was amazing everything you would expect from a Hilton Hotel! I would advise that Hilton take deposit for the room which is transferred back to you this is £100. I received confirmation from the clinic that evening regarding what time the car will arrive to pick me in the morning for the surgery. On the morning of the surgery the car arrived promptly to take me the clinic. Once I arrived at the clinic I was greeted by Ashley, she was excellent, made me feel very comfortable, calmed my nerves, explained the whole surgery to me and introduced me to the team that would be carrying out my transplant. I was then taken to do some blood tests and to meet with the anaesthetist who asked some medical questions about lifestyle etc. I was then prepped for surgery The clinic was amazing, clean, comfortable and very professional. I was asked to get changed for surgery, (I recommend you wear a button top for the surgery day this will be helpful at the end to put your clothes back from the gown they provide you). The process was very good, the nurses cut my hair, connected me to a drip to keep me hydrated and help with nausea and sickness, I was mild sedative, where I was awake but felt very relaxed, this lasted for about 15 minutes in that time I was given my anaesthetic injections, these didn’t hurt just felt like a scratch, the nurse quickly got to work in extracting their hair, I was very relaxed at this point and decided to take a short nap! The team worked quickly and effortlessly to make the process as quick as possible, they continued to check if I was ok or if I was feeling any pain, (I recommend to learn a few Turkish words it really helps with the conversations!) once the hair was removed the Doctor came and drew my hairline and checked it I was happy with it. We agreed and I was told I was going to have some lunch and then they will get started on doing the transplants. The doctor returned to make the insertions for the graphs to go into. This again was more or less pain free but mild discomfort when the injections are put into the front part of your head. This process was very quick and simple and I watched the TV through it all with out even feeling someone working on my head. The nurses returned and started to then insert the hair. This is longest process of the whole treatment. Due to the nature of my

The team are fantastic and they are friendly. If you live in USA and want to have your transplant, I recommend going to Este Nove Clinic in Istanbul. There are several clinics out there but if you are looking for quality, service’s at a good price do not hesitate to contact Este Nove Clinic.

Be VERY careful if you choose to use this company. I paid $895 and received my impression kit fairly quickly. They were unhappy with all three impressions, so for another $10, I was sent another kit. Again, they were unhappy with the three new impressions (that's a total of 6 impressions top and bottom). They offered me a video session to get the impressions just right. I took off from work to do the session, and they blew me off. No session, no email, and now I've missed work. At this point, I decided I was done with them. Trying to get a refund from this company is EXTREMELY difficult. I had to threaten them with filing a claim with both AMEX and the BBB. I left a 1-star review here on TrustPilot, and they finally agreed to a refund so long as I complied with their demand to delete the review (seriously?!). They tried to keep $69.99 for the impression kit when it was only $39.99. After sending screenshots and having to argue with a very unprofessional 'resolution specialist' named James Myles, I received my refund of $855 within a few days. I blocked this company from my email, and my AMEXand set up a fraud alert on my CC, just in case they try to charge me again. I believe this company does work successfully for some people, and that's fantastic. They are definitely cheaper than a lot of other options out there, but there's a reason for that. Just be VERY SURE you want to go through the hassle of taking the impressions and dealing with these people via email only (they do have a phone number, but it's outsourced to India, and their customer support is extremely bare-bones) because if you need/want a refund, it is NOT a pleasant experience (read the negative reviews). I honored my 'refund agreement' and removed my original 1-star review of this company. I never said I wouldn't leave another review with a different rating, though, so here it is.

I paid $895 in full on Jan 25th for these aligners (Order #112196). They sent me a kit but were unhappy with the way the impressions turned out. They needed to send me another kit (for an additional $10 charge), and it arrived promptly. However, they were unhappy with THOSE impressions as well. They offered me two different time slots for a video session. I picked one, took time off work, and they BLEW ME OFF. No email, no video session, and now I've missed half a day of work. I emailed them my dissatisfaction with their unprofessional business practices and requested a refund. No one replied to my email. I called and spoke to 'Ethan' who was extremely vague and said yes, my case had been escalated and I should receive an email shortly. He tried to get off the phone, but when I asked SPECIFICALLY when I would receive my refund, he tripped over himself with gibberish non-answers. When I continued to press, he said 5-7 days then hurried off the phone. I have still not received an email. I have contacted American Express and will be filing a claim with them. I will wait one week (as advised by AMEX). If I have not received my FULL refund of $895 by Wednesday, March 2nd, I will file my AMEX claim, I will file a claim with the BBB, and I will leave this one-star review on every single platform I can find where this company is reviewed. All I want is my money back. If I get that back, I'll delete this review, file no claims, and move on with my life.

Absolutely grateful for the results and also very happy with everything from clinic comms through information provided. Mr Will Sarakbi is definitely the best. He gave the opportunity to ask any questions I have and has been transparent with everything included in the procedure especially risks. I've wanted to do breast augmentation for 10+ years and only now summoned the courage. Even until the last minute I was really scared however Will and the anesthesiologist Ian were so lovely, professional and re-assuring that all fear disappeared and I woke up calm and happy. I was also very pleased with the aftercare in the Welbeck hospital where my surgery took place. The staff were the nicest, caring and very attentive.

My course was also moved from the original practitioner who I consulted with to someone else, who didn’t understand my requirements and as a result didn’t perform the procedure as intended. The customer service team have failed to provide a suitable alternative and are now being inflexible and refusing to provide a refund for the remaining treatments.

I went to the clinic in October to do Botox with doctor Zavahir. I haven't done Botox for a while because last time I ve done it (somewhere else of course!) - I ve ended up looking almost like an extra from the scary movie (top part of my face was frozen like a wax doll and it did not match the rest of my face. The doctor who did it didn't even asked me what kind of looks I wanted. I did explained but obviously- some doctors don't listen!) Over the years I ve had couple of positive experiences with Botox but I also had at least 2 experiences when I just looked weird. There for, I ve avoided the procedure altogether for few years. But as they say- prevention is better then correction, and so I didn't want to wait for deep lines to appear because it's easier to treat them when they are smaller. I did search online and first thing I looked for was reviews. The clinics themselves can glorify themselves as much as they want (through clever marketing campaigns) - but it's the patients after all that have the procedures done and pay money for it. The reviews of this clinic were good, but I thought that I will go for consultation and decide after that. Dr Zavahir is a very friendly individual who is professional, non intimidating and easy to talk to. He asked me exactly what I was looking to achieve and I had told him that I wanted visible results (let's face it- who wants to pay money for nothing? ) - but I also didn't want to end up looking weird again. He examined my face, I did many grimaces like a monkey :-) .. But obvious it was necessary to establish what muscles of the face needed to be treated. We have decided to do the treatment , wait 10 days and then if I felt that I wanted to top up- I would come back and pay little extra. That's exactly what I did. The procedure itself was painless. Doctor warned me that I may have slight headache the next day or so after the procedure, which is normal. Some people get it, and most people don't. I got it, but it went away fast. The price was highly competitive compare to other clinics and I ended up with pleasing results. I am thinking of having my lips done also. And seeing how careful and considerate Dr Zavahir was with my Botox treatment- I am sure that I could trust him with other procedures. Dr Zavahir is knowledgable about many procedures (I ve done a lot of research over the years about different procedures ) and we chatted about it, he is very good at giving advice but he would never recommend to a patient doing something that patient doesn't need. He is very honest person, which I liked. His assistant Lauren was lovely as well. Very friendly and professional. Highly recommended practice.

I received scar revision surgery by Mr Christopher Inglefield when the bandage was removed I noticed a dimple around the scar. I questioned this and I was told by Mr. Inglefield “it will go” However after many years it has not gone. I tried to book an appointment and was repeatedly asked to pay £200 for a consultation despite my circumstance. I was eventually seen without charge after many emails and the threat to report to the General Medical Council. During the consultation Mr Inglefield said “I don’t know why it hasn’t gone” and then told me I should have an Xray to see if there is something going on with the bone! I was asked to pay more money for tests and I was been told to go to the Nhs! The next day, I was told by email from the clinic manager “Mr. Inglefield does not feel it’s related to your scar revision” I was also denied my file which contained before and after pictures which would clearly show I didn’t have the dimple before the scar revision. From my research this occurs when the skin is too tightly stitched. If considering going with this clinic I would advise keeping a copy of all pictures and payment records. Also, I was offered my original treatment money back but even that was £200 less. I couldn’t accept it as the new problem would cost me more to fix! I have reported this doctor and the clinic to various health organisations.

I have been a patient of Mr Inglefield's at LBPS for 15 years (original breast enhancement plus later revisions) and have only ever received exceptional care. Mr Inglefield is an expert in his field, and has always treated me with the utmost respect and dignity. I have never felt rushed by any of the team, and my aftercare has always been very thorough. My results have always been beyond my expectations, and I would not hesitate to recommend them. The nursing team are so friendly, and caring and always go above and beyond to reassure their patients. Even during this current time of isolation/restrictions, I have still received excellent and thorough aftercare through emails/phone conversations and a face to face post op check by Mr Inglefield himself at One Hatfield Hospital. I cannot recommend highly enough.

shelleyharker

Firstly I must point out that nearly all 5 star reviews on here are by reviews that have only ever provided one review indicating to me these are possibly fake reviews. Secondly, I appreciate this a very long review, However, I encourage you to take the time to read it before you commit to using Medaway. Key Points: • Scariest experience of my life • Poor communication • Dirty hospital room • Pressured to sign documents written in Turkish and refused translation on request • Poor hand hygiene • No dignity for patients in theatre areas • Traumatic hospital experience • Post-surgical infection • Very few English speaking staff Pre surgery I had good communication with clinical support when discussing and arranging the surgery, and to be fair, they were the most responsive of anyone to my needs over the time of my experience. It was arranged that I had a video call with my surgeon to discuss the surgery and, although the consultation felt rushed, he answered my questions I had at that time. I questioned the negative feedback on webpages and was reassured by customer support that these were often people who had not followed post-surgery direction or were from other competitive services (I can now see this was likely a lie). In January I travelled to Turkey for septorhinoplasty and otoplasty with Medway. I arrived very late at night and was slightly frustrated and stressed due to having still not being told a time for my surgery the following day. I had been fasting for a number of hours just in case it was early in the morning. In fact, I felt I had to actively ask for any pre-operation advice as very little was provided. I was taken from the airport to the hospital and was met by a friendly member of the patient host team. He took me for pre-operation blood tests and informed me my operation was a 2pm and would be collected at 11am the following day which gave me some time to have something quick to eat and drink. I was then driven to the hotel. Day of surgery I was collected at 11am, as planned, and once at the hospital I was taken to the ward area. I waited for a short period for my room to be cleaned and then taken to the room by a nurse. This nurse seemed to be the lead nurse and was the only nurse who spoke limited English. She asked me to change into my gown and advised me that the surgeon would be there shortly for a pre-op discussion. I noted that all staff were not naked below the elbow at any time or for any procedure, they aften wore fleeces, and I NEVER saw anyone wash their hands with running water once – this was the case for my whole experience. When shown the room I was quite shocked - this did not look as clean or modern as the video I was sent during my home consultation. There were two shabby sofas along the side of the room, the sink area looked mucky and there was liquid (possibly food) spillage over the table. There was an ensuite where there was no toilet roll, the paper towel holder was hanging of the wall and there was faeces floating in the toilet. The lead nurse entered the room with approx. 10 documents written in Turkish and simply said I needed to sign, time and date every page and once I had done this, she would go through my blood results. At this time I pointed out the dirty table she had put the documents down onto, but she told me not to worry and to sign the documents. I explained to her that I was unable to read Turkish and that I was not happy to sign something I could not read. She clearly was annoyed by this and after a number of times of her telling me to sign, she stated if I did not that I would not get the surgery. By this time I was stressed, anxious, frustrated and tired, therefore gave in and signed the documents. On signing the last document the nurse’s mobile rang and she began talking on this, and without acknowledgment she took the paperwork from me and continued to leave the room. I asked for my blood results to which she replied I would not understand them before turning away and walking toward the door, whilst still on her phone. I asked again for my results and explained I was a nurse and would understand them. She reluctantly showed me before leaving the room, still with phone attached to her ear. I felt so lost in the whole situation. I waited in that room for hours asking when the surgeon would arrive and kept being told “soon”. I messaged my Medway contacts WhatsApp group, they replied stating they would find this out but, again, I was told he would be there “soon”. 2pm was approaching and a nurse entered with room with a tray to cannulate me ready for surgery, she did not speak English, but I understood that’s what she was there for. She sat me on the side of the bed where she applied her gloves (she did not clean her hands in the room) and proceeded to attempt to cannulate me. I appreciate I had not eaten or drank in a long period, and this could have caused issue finding a vein, but she butchered my arm. I could see she was going right through the vein multiple times. She poked around so much with the needle I broke out in a sweat and started to retch from distress and discomfort, this resulted in me almost fainting and having to lie on to the bed. The nurse called her colleagues into the room and performed my blood pressure before telling me I was fine and leaving the room. 2pm came and went and I had asked a number of times when the surgeon would be there. I was eventually told he was stuck in traffic but would be there soon. This whole time I was scared due to lack of communication and the experience I had so far. I was also anxious due to never having had surgery before and being there alone. Eventually the surgeon arrived, over an hour after the surgery was due to start, for the “pre-op consultation” this consisted of 2 minutes of him telling me what he was going to do before leaving the room and telling the nurses to take me to theatres. I was pushed to theatres on my bed and waited momentarily outside of a theatre room. The door was wide open, and someone was being operated on. Many staff were stood around in the operating room, again in long sleeved fleeces, looking at their mobile phones whilst the surgery was taking place. I was then taken down the corridor passed several surgical rooms, again witnessing people being operated on. The only thing I could compare this to is a scene out of the hostel movies. Once in the theatre nobody explained what was happening, no one spoke English well. The bed I was on did not work, therefore I had to climb onto the operating table. It was pointed out that I was shaking, and I was asked if I was cold, this was not the case, I was actually just terrified! Without explanation a women started injecting something into my cannula… Post-surgery The next thing I remember is being slapped across the face being told to wake up. I was obviously very disorientated but remember shaking uncontrollably, on investigating this I found this was because I was allowed to become hypothermic whilst in surgery and this was my body’s response when coming around, which again was extremely scary as nothing was ever communicated or explained. My heels were very sore and red which indicates I was probably in distress and rubbing them on the sheets continuously whilst coming around. After reporting this to the nurse she eventually offered to use a cushion to elevate my heels to relieve the pain. Over the several hours of the night in the hospital and whilst coming around the nurses to regularly come to my room to change my eye ice packs and see how I was which I appreciated but they never explained what they were doing. Due to the swelling and ice packs on my eyes I could not see anything and the dressings over my ears restricted hearing. They would enter the room take my hand and inject (? what) into my cannula. I obviously wanted to know what they were injecting into my body and asked every time, but merely told “pharmacia”. As previously mentioned, my bed did not work, so I was unable to keep my head elevated as recommended. The nurse bell must have been broken as every couple of hours this would alarm and wake me. I felt I was an inconvenience to the nursing staff, it seem they just wanted to get back to the nursing station and back on their phones, some were more empathetic than others. The ward area was also used for an outpatient waiting area and patients were often sat outside of my door talking, and anyone could have accessed my room at any time, which made recovery very unsettling. I knew the day after surgery that I would be returned to the hotel, and I could not wait to get out of the hospital. After feeling well enough to sit up in bed, eat and drink I questioned when the surgeon would be attending for post-surgery review. Again, I was told “soon” by both the nurses and the patient host team. After waiting hours I called on the patient host team, who chased up the surgeon. They informed me the surgeon had returned to surgery and would be another 3 hours. By this time I was so stressed, unsettled, tired and frustrated. I wanted to feel I had some safety and control over my situation, so I asked to be returned to the hotel. I had no trust that the surgeon would only be another 3 hours as nothing ran to time. The return to the hotel was arranged. I asked for post-surgery advice and was given direction on how to take medications provided, told to keep the dressings on and clean and dry and given an ice pack to apply to my eyes. The hotel and their staff were amazing. I followed the directions given on my discharge, but my eye lids swelled incredibly the following day, so much so I could barely see. I was very worried as I was alone, and if I lost my sight, I had no way of contacting anyone, ordering food or anything. I contacted the patient host team who told me to apply ice, I explained the balloons with ice in had now obviously melted, to which they replied to order it from the hotel. I called room service and had quite a difficulty explaining what I needed but they were able to provide me with plastic bags and ice. I had to call for ice multiple times each day. On the third day without reason my nose started bleeding through the dressings and would not stop. I contacted the patient host team who told me not to worry and that this was normal. I had to emphasise that my nose was bleeding a lot, soaking the dressings. I was picked up and taken to the hospital, but again no doctor was available to review me. The nurses seemed confused and not really familiar with what they needed to do but I believe they spoke to a doctor on the phone. They looked and cleaned my nose and replaced the dressings. I asked for more dressings to take to the hotel with me, I do not feel they would have provided any if I had not have asked, and I did need them leading up to my final review before going home. I feel I managed my own recovery over the following days, I did not feel confident in the Medway team or the hospital staff. The day before my departure back home I was taken to the hospital for my post-surgical review with my surgeon, however, I was informed my surgeon was not in and I would be seeing someone else – (to summarise, I only saw my surgeon, and in fact any doctor, for 2 mins immediately before my surgery and at no other time during my stay)! I was sat waiting for my final review for 3 hours and every time I asked when I would be seen, again, I was told “soon”! Eventually a shabby unkempt man called me into a room and removed the nasal tampons and some dressings. He told me to keep my remaining dressings in place for another 2 weeks and left. Back in the UK I was so pleased to be back in the UK, I had never been so scared, uninformed and anxious in my life prior to this experience. A day or two after being home I started getting night sweats, body ache, lethargy, and spiked temperatures of 39 degrees. I performed a covid test and was positive, of which I appreciate is unlikely to be any fault of the surgery etc. However, over the following days I did not get better, my nose and sinuses became painful, and pus developed in my nose. My GP discovered that not only did I have covid, but I also had developed a post-surgical infection in my nose. I most emphasis that I followed the very limited post operative advice provided, and as a registered nurse of 13 years, have a lot experiencing managing wounds etc. I contacted the team on the Medway WhatsApp group, the end of January, requesting a doctor’s summary of my care to provide to my doctor and I was told they would send this to me, I received this 2.5 months later. As you have read, I have found the whole experience with Medway traumatising, and I am appalled that this was able to take place. I often felt I had no power or say about my care and felt too powerless to challenge people about their practice. I further feel, although Medway present themselves as a caring and professional service provider, that they are more focused on the money making aspect, and that I was not treated in the professional, caring, empathetic and safe way that someone would expect from a healthcare provider. I had sent the above experience to Medway as a formal complaint and months later received a standardised letter apology stating a senior manager will review the complaint, but again, I have had to chase this multiple times with no response. I would not recommend Medaway.
