toM,

You are back to old form. You have been nothing but trouble on this site and all I was did was respond to your attack on Sean. You did attack and insult him and it is funny in a juvenile way that you respond the way you do.

The spam charge stands. If not, why do you demand others give you their email? Not to send love letters! So, my question: why the attack on Sean? Can you honestly answer that question? I doubt it.

recurrence

Wolfgang,

I understand your description and I think it underscores where I was headed with my thoughts. When a nodule first appears and surgery is performed to remove it, we have a 50-50 chance of the disease reappearing. The thing that wraps me up though is that a: if the surgury removes all the diseased tissue does it ever recur? I tend to think that the palmar fascia is prone to this disease in those of us in this gene pool so I (erroneously?) conclude that if any of the fascia remains, the disease can occur. We call it recurrentce if we've had it before, but it could be an entirely new site.

When I had my foot surgery, it was disease free for several (5?) years - meaning no new lumps, but I doubt it was because all the diseased tussue was not removed. I had plenty of plantar fascia remaining. The disease re-appeared but not close to the incision. At the same time my left foot showed a lump.

So as you described, many recurrences are due to the trauma of surgery, and some are just the appearance of the disease. After all, this is a disease of the palmar and plantar tissue and as long as we're in the gene pool, and have palmar and plantar tissue, we may see this disease rear it's head at any time.

I prefer the mildly invasive NA procedure because it keeps my hand open without the major cost, PT, wound healing, etc issues presented by OS. Why attempt to remove all the diseased tissue when it can recur at any time anyway? We're just ticking time bombs for the lumps to appear. But hey, that's me and my choice.

Sean - no disrespect intended. I just think there is benefit to your posts because everyone is different as you point out.

Update on NA in France

Graeme,
As promised I spoke to Dr L about updates on NA in France. He assured me that updates are being done every year but, only in French and not published on the internet. There is to be a conference on NA next month but again it is only going to be in French and will not be published on the internet.
It is interesting to note that there are half a million known sufferers of DC in France and one million in the UK.
No UK medics have yet requested training for NA.
Dr L is so busy see-ing people from the UK that he has cut his hours at the hospital to fit in all his requests for treatment. I saw him on the morning of the 12th Sep and he was treating two other UK people that same afternoon.
Some facts I obtained; 1/. Half the people having surgery have a re-currence of the disease. 2/. It is possible to have NA time and time again as there is no scar tissue to cause problems.
Once again my treatment was totally magic and I cannot praise Dr L enough.

Multiple N.A..s

Marjorie:

For some reason, I had thought that a person could have only about 3 N.A. procedures done on the same finger.

But, fortunately, it seems that I was wrong.

CW, I believe another alias for Sean/Gary/etc., wrote: "If not, why do you demand others give you their email? Not to send love letters! So, my question: why the attack on Sean? Can you honestly answer that question? I doubt it."

Can you provide proof that I've demanded others give their email? I think I may have asked for it in the past from various trolls contaminating this board, that's about it. The comments on Sean were to set the record straight. While he, probably you, tries to act as some sort of elder stateman, the record will show, if anybody chooses to delve through the last 4+ years of postings , that Sean/Gary has repeatedly denounced NA and has resorted to viscious insults when anybody dared question or challenge his assertions.

toM,

You are wrong. I follow this forum off and on, and very seldom post. These other people you attribute to me, are just that, other people. There have even been a considerable number who have placed messages using the name "Sean". Usually, I ignore these other posts to avoid this personalities conflict some like to engage in. My only purpose on this forum is to sometimes add advice to those who have chosen (or had to chose) fasciectomies as their option. In addition, I think Dupuytren's is an interesting disease, considering the many variations and results.

I think that it is great, that people have a choice including NA, but not limited to NA. And, I have said so on many occasions. Naturally, for me surgery worked very well, as it has for many, many people. It is also, important to note that for some, the results are not as good (just as in any surgery). This doesn't make a fasciectomy as something which should be scorned. For early intervention, NA is very appropriate for many (perhaps most). The results for NA can be very positive for NA, because of the early intervention. Fasciectomies are generally used when Dupuytren's reaches more severe stages, so naturally results would be difficult to compare.

Sean/Gary

Hi Graeme,
The reason that Dr Lermusiaux did not go to the ASSH conference was simply because he was too busy. He was invited but expressed regret that he just could not afford the time because of his committment to his patients, lots of them from the UK. It is so sad that no-one here has been for training. I shall contact the new head of the NHS and see if he will listen.

Sean/Gary your post was idiotic. I repeat,while you, try to act as some sort of elder stateman, the record will show, if anybody chooses to delve through the last 4+ years of postings , that you have repeatedly denounced NA and has resorted to viscious insults when anybody dared question or challenge your idiotic assertions.
