Aleksander Sheretun is a 45 years old Ukrainian woman who had brain tumor. Her complaints started 3 years ago. After the tests that have done in Ukraine she learnt that she has epilepsy which is also known as seizure disorders. It is the 4th most common neurological disorder in the world. She took different kinds of medicine to avoid her from falling on the ground and other results of the disease. Doctors in Ukraine did not want to perform the operation because it was too dangerous. But after a while medicines couldn’t stop her from passing out or falling on the ground. She started passing out more, having muscle spasms and her brain tumor got bigger and bigger day by day.
After all these she decided to go to Russia to get her brain surgery done. There doctors told her that they can do the surgery but it may leave some permanent incapacities. That’s why she rejected to get her surgery done in Russia. Secondly she went to Hungary but doctors rejected to perform an operation. So she decided to try getting it done in Israel. They told her that they can just take the 60% of the tumor and she would probably have a permanent disability in her talking after the surgery. She learnt the doctors in Germany could perform the operation but it would be so dangerous. Her doctor in Ukraine told her that she may get it done in Turkey. In August she came to Turkey and went to a private hospital in Istanbul. Doctors got blood samples and started to analyze her test results. After all the tests, doctors diagnosed lost in her ability to talk and understand what people are talking about. She wasn’t able to feel her right leg and arm. Doctors told her and her husband that they can do the surgery. Doctors took the tumor in a 6-hours long surgery. The tumor she had in her left lobe was putting to much pressure on the parts which enables her to talk and feel on the right side of her body. Tumor was the cause of her passing out and falling on the ground, too. So after the surgery, she started to talk and feel better in a short period of time because the pressure that tumor was causing was gone.
