10th of November 2021, I was diagnosed with endometrioid adenocarcinoma
grade 1. It was devastating as I want to have my 3rd child. But the
only option I got was the removal of my uterus. I have met a doctor in another
hospital and he informed me that the uterus along with the ovaries, fallopian
tube and lymph nodes will be removed through Laparoscopic Hysterectomy but of course, being away from my home country, school year of my
kids is ongoing, travel restrictions and a lot more factors, I have
decided to undergo with my surgery here in Dubai and of course not having
encountered such scenario, I have to go for the best. One of the nurse
colleague of my friend highly recommended Dr. Labib E. Riachi of
Mediclinic City Hospital. So of course, we have to get a 2nd opinion.
we met Dr. Labib, we were impressed by his experience and he advised that I
will undergo for a Robotic Laparoscopic Hysterectomy, less invasive, faster
recovery and in lay man’s term, they can see more what's inside of me, therefore
as of that time we met him, only removal of my uterus will be done and ovaries
will be decided on the day of the procedure. To cut the story short, I was
scheduled for Robotic Laparoscopic Hysterectomy last 30thNovember 2021.
During the procedure, the uterus was removed, cyst from my ovary was removed
but I get to keep my ovaries.
Dr. Labib and the procedure he has done was
exceptional. First 2 days after the surgery, obviously it hurts a lot, but on
the 4thday, I don’t even have to drink a pain killer as the pain is
bearable. I pray to God that whatever happened to me wont happen to any women.
However, if in case, I would highly recommend Dr. Labib E. Riachi of
I am grateful for the tremendous procedure he has done for me. In
addition to above, it’s the 1sttime I have been to Mediclinic City
Hospital and the Nurse who took really good care of me named Bule was also
exceptional, thank you, thank you so much! You treated me like I’m your
child 😊the world is a better
place because of the people like you Dr. Labib and Nurse Bule. Overall, 5
starts for Mediclinic City Hospital. Happy New Year! – From Paulette Santos
