I have long-standing problems with the blood vessels. When varicose veins increased thrombophlebitis, my doctor said that the situation is serious, and you need to prepare for surgery. Surgery I decided abroad, but there was an important caveat. Because patients vessels a long flight for me was the threat, and indeed to fly I didn't – a very high risk that the clot.
When I was asked to go for treatment to Poland, I was very surprised. Somehow I did not meant the countries of the former Soviet bloc with the medicine of the European level. As it turned out, absolutely nothing. I looked on the Internet and decided to contact Maciej Chelaru, as it is considered one of the leading vascular surgeons in Poland. Went to Warsaw on the train, decided not to risk it. Arrived without problems. The first consultation was rather long, the doctor conversed with me through an interpreter, examined his feet, then appointed a few studies and suggested not to proceed with the operation. He also believed that the risk of a blood clot separation is very high. I agreed, and he operated on me the next day. Don't know what I did, but I recovered very quickly and soon went home.
Immediately after the childbirth of my child was completely healthy, at least so the doctors said. However, it is very bad eating and came to the ground, then began to get sick, always have some infection, which is also poorly developed. We decided to explore son abroad, began to choose hospital. Stopped at Poland – and still closer and cheaper, the reviews are very good. About Medicover clinic I told the pediatrician, and then I began to look for information on the Internet. Before we go for treatment, I consulted with a doctor from the clinic Medicover, she gave me advice on examination. Some of the assignments I did in Russia, after all it's cheaper, but most surveys were carried out already in Warsaw. It seemed to me that I should, because and laboratory tests, and other methods may have different rules in different countries. As a result of the child revealed a rare disease-congenital immunodeficiency who require permanent replacement therapy. As soon as he started to get it turned into an ordinary child and soon caught up with their peers in height and weight.
Remember how it all began, I hate still. Weakness, malaise, fatigue, the doctor suspected corny low hemoglobin, was sent for a blood test and suddenly it found tumor cells. Rechecked, did a bone marrow puncture — the diagnosis was confirmed, a cancer of the blood, leukemia. Of course, I admit that in Russia I would be cured, I suppose, that luck would be with drugs (cancer patients, they are often not enough or is effective is administered useless and expensive replacement). However, I immediately decided: going to be treated in Israel, at least partially, but there. With a choice of clinic, the question was not — I come from several sources received confirmation that the Medical center named after Yitzhak Rabin — the best cancer treatment in the country. There clinical some University, and the latest techniques, and treatment outcomes (survival, absence of metastases) are much better than in many other clinics. The treatment was long. I was lucky that he was the right person to stay, but in principle next to the clinic there are special apartments for patients and their relatives. In General, without going into details, of course, it was hard, both physically and mentally. But the attitude of the staff, the atmosphere made the treatment as comfortable as possible, for which I am very grateful to the doctors and nurses.
