Peyronies and Dupuytrens

I (male, 51) had Peyronies about 10 years ago. It gradually disappeared. I now have 7 or 8 hard lumps in my right hand which the doctors seem to think is Dupuytrens. However as I also have schwanomatosis they cannot be sure that the lumps are not neurofibromas. Only an op. will tell me and I am against surgury until there is absolutely no option. My hand is still fully usable with hardly any contraction, a fact I put down to doing regular yoga - the 'downward dog' pose forces the fingers out and the hand open.

Peyronies went away

In my mid to late twenties I developed a very noticable curvature of the penis. I didn't know what was causing it at the time and I just lived with it, despite some embarassment when sexually involved with women.

Over the coarse of my thirties, the curavature gradually diminished and was entirely gone by the mid forties. Now in my late fifties, it never returned.

However, in my mid fifties I developed Dupytrens nodules and some bands in both hands, and knuckle pads on one. In researching the disease, I learned about Peyronies which I now realize was most likely the cause of penis curvature many years ago.

DUPUYTREN'S DISEASE

I was diagnosed today with Dupuytren and in my research I have found that there may be alternatives to surgery. Has anyone had success with "needle aponevrotony" or collagenase? Also does anyone know who is researching "enzymatic percutaneous fasciotomy?" Any information you give me will be greatly appreciated.

Dupruytens in the foot

On holiday recently i noticed that i had small lumps under my right foot similar to the ones in both my hands. I have had dupruytens in both hands for some years.

I noticed a website of the "Southern California Orthopeadic Institute" which mentions dupruytens in the foot, has anyonelse experience or information about this?

Ledderhose's Disease

Mike,

my case is similar. In the foot it is called Ledderhose's Disease (LD) or Plantar Fibromatosis. I would recommend that you start by seeing a podiatrist (& then an orthopaedic surgeon if necessary). In my case the podiatrist prescribed orthotics to correct a small problem with foot alignment/gait, which was exascerbating the condition. It hasn't cured the problem but there is less discomfort and slowed down the rate of progression. The foot alignment problem was placing additional stress on the LD and making it worse.

dupytrens & peyronies

i haven't been to a doctor but i have researched these conditions on the net. i started having pain with a erection about a year ago. my penis now bends at about a 45 degree angle. i lost about 2 inches in size. now about a week ago i found that i cannot mentally cause my middle and ring fingers to seperate on my left hand. also they are bending downwards. case in point, i9 think both diseases are linked somehow.

needle aponevrotomy

I flew to paris in oct. 2003 and saw dr. badois. I had advanced first stage in both hands, the right being the worst. The procedure completely opened the left hand and 90% of the right. I still have a lump on the last finger of the right. The procedure was completely painless and lasts about an hour. You'll probably be happiest (if you go) at the hotel du lac but the cost is high due to the strong euro. There's also a doctor in jupiter, fl who was trained by dr. badois. Whomever you choose, it's definitely worth it.

NA Doctors

Please consider NA before you select surgery. There are at least three hand doctors who perform NA. We all know the fine work Dr.Eaton in Florida has done for at least 750 patients. He has an associate who treats NA...Dr. Zidel. Let us not forget that we have another great hand doctor who has been treating NA with great success...Dr. Bourland in Memphis. I am sure between them all well more than 1,000 patients have been treated with NA.
