    Message for Mark

    Dear Mark, I am also waiting for a reply from Dr Badois but I am stoic and philosophical about this. I have DC in both hands the right one has been operated on some 8 years ago and the cords came back with a vengence also the post op was traumatic in terms of a reaction to a 2hour operation and over 3 months rehabilitation. Surgery is the final choice only when all other avenues have failed. This is my point of view and only applies to me. Like all DC people I know the value of functional hands. I am looking forward to talking to people who dont understand me it will be like talking to Doctors here in Australia. Just jokin.

      English

      Dr. Lermusiaux speaks English very well as I know from personal experience. August is the traditional month for vacations in France so your timing is bad. When I made my appointment with him by email I received an immediate response. I suggested two months, four months in the future. He replied with a date and time during one of those months, which I accepted. You seem to feel obligated to do something in September which may be impossible to schedule for NA. Personaly I would wait for as long as it takes to have NA rather than traditional surgery.

        Mark~sq~s experience

        Mark, are you what the rest of the world refers to as a
        "soccer houligan?" No doctor will want to see you; so, play
        your cards carefully. You have narrowed your options down
        to two U.S. hand surgeons that have minimal experience and
        are going to charge five times the fee plus air fare.
        You'll show'em, though! Someone else is actually picking
        up your tab, I suspect. Have a few pints before the visit.
        Be sure to visit Graceland or Disneyworld.

          My change in plans...

          I sent e-mail to both Dr's in France, and received a reply only from Dr. Badois. I was preparing to set an appointment with him and book the flight for my wife and myself. My itenerary was set. LAX to London, take the train through the chunnel to Paris, NA with Dr. Badois, see Paris over two days, a short flight to Barcelona for Saint George's day (their Valentines day)on April 23rd, and fly home to Los Angeles. I was going to book the entire trip the next afternoon. Then the train blew up in Barcelona and threats were made against planes landing in Paris. Anyway, scratch the European vacation, call Dr. Eaton. Made an appointment for May 20th, and planned what became a FANTASTIC week in Florida. We arrived in Key West on the 22nd, planned on spending 2 days, and couldn't escape for 4! Dr. Eaton is all the great things you have read about, and more... a real throwback to how I remember Dr's were when I was a child, before HMO's and 6 minute office visits. I was charged for 2 fingers, $1,200, and he spent well over an hour on my right hand, which was well into stage 2. IMHO, wait until hurricane season is over, and arrange to see Charlie.

            Dr Badois

            I had nA with Dr Badois in May. It was a quick simple operation. He was very good and I would go again. France and Italy and probably other parts of Europe really do shut down in August.

            Perhaps Florida would be a better option as you probably would get an appointment quicker and perhaps be more comfortable.

            Good luck to you!

              email address for Lariboisiere doctors

              Here in Europe the consultants who do any procedures like this take august off..

              they start back up at the end of August because August is there holiday break.

              Hope this helps.

                  Eddie,

                  You really are a stunner and never cease to amuse (I really do not mean that in a bad way, I love to smile!). What really is the situation with you and this thing because you never seem to get any further down the line. Trips to Europe are not that expensive. Are you sure it is not b/s half the time? Are you sure you are not a surgeon in disguise?

                    appointments

                    http://assoc.wanadoo.fr/f.badois-dupuytren/html/gbsommaire.html Here is a list of NA practioners world-wide. I can find out more about the Toulouse one and will post when I do. All over Europe you can ring up and make an appointment (language barriers notwithstanding). Obviously, they are not going to treat immediately without some 'history'. Getting an email back is often difficult because of the language barriers. Why not use an Internet phone and ask if /when you can speak to the doctor and does he speak English? A lot will say that they don't, but often can when face-to-face. I have had treatments in many countries of the world and from some lovely doctors, where language was a bit of a problem, but together we got there, often with a lot of laughs! Good luck
