Help to contact with doctors in France

Postby maixba » Wed Apr 08, 2015 8:25 am

Hello everyone!
Sorry for my bad English. I'm writing email to your from Vietnam. I have a pain in the pelvic floor, it started around 6 months ago. I came to hospital and after carrying some diagnostics included Imaging studies using MRI, Doctors said that it is pudendal nerve entrapment. Therefore I've got into the hospital for treatment. The doctor injected Triamcinolone into the Alcock canal.
After the first treatment, there wasn't any pain relief. therefore, after 02 months I was in hospital for re-injection Triamcinolone in to the Aclock canal. The second treatment wasn't effective, there isn't any pain relief. The doctor said that I need an surgery decompression. Unfortunately in Vietnam such surgery is not available.

My life started worse and worse since I has a pain, I don't want to stop working due to such disable pain. I'm trying to get treatment abroad. I search in the website and I try to contact with Prof Roger Robert at and Dr Eric Bautrant by email and by telephone provided. however , there was any success.
I contact with CHU Nantes, they said that Prof Robert did not work for CHU Nantes anymore, he works for his private hospital.

I’m very appreciate if you could give me the helps to contact with these doctors.

Best Regards,

Welcome and sorry you are having pain with no local support. From the other postings in this France section it says to contact Judy Birch at her website to get to Prof Robert. Hope this works and you can get the treatment you need.
2007-08 pelvic muscles spasms (per colon-rectal dr.) treated by ElectroGalvanicStimulis(EGS). 6/27/10 sat too long on a hard chair- spasms, EGS not work Botox help, spine pain dr cortisone shots in coccyx help, still pain, PT found PNE & sent me to Dr Marvel nerve blocks & MRN, TG left surgery 5/9/11. I have chronic bunion pain started/surgery at age 21. TG gave me back enough sitting to keep my job and join in some social activities. I wish the best to everyone!

The Email address to contact Judy Birch is

Judy can contact french doctors for you and arrange appointments - it is a Dr Labat and a Dr Riant who work with Dr Robert who you would see first for tests.

You could also ask if anyone on the French forum knows how to contact them.

When I spoke with Prof. Robert about 6 months ago the information on our website was correct but it sounds like maybe he has changed his practice.

Dr. Bautrant sometimes takes awhile to answer his emails but it's also possible his contact info has changed.

Good luck.

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.
