Post PNE Dr. Dellon surgical update

Postby Frankiet » Sat Jul 25, 2015 11:19 pm

I just had decompression surgery of the pudendal nerve by Dr. Dellon and would like to post my story and updates. Surgery was 9 days ago. I am already seeing improvement and still have 23 sutures. I saw where others posted a link to their story.

I have some valuable info to share. It's the least I could do since this is where I began my research. Can you tell me how to do it? I will post my story. I'm male 65 yrs old.

Thanks to all for sharing your stories!

Regards,

Frank

Hi Frank,

Welcome to the forum. You can post your story here or in the welcome section if you prefer. Either place is fine.

Wishing you all the best with your recovery!

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.

It's been 3 weeks since surgery. I have seen a big improvement in reduced pain. I can sit for short periods and have been able to drive short distances again. I was able to reduce my opioid usage by 25% . I have 4 days of water walking therapy behind me, today is cool and rain expected, I will walk 2 miles instead of driving 15 minutes to mom's

My appetite is returning, I have gained 2 lbs after losing 65 lbs from pain.

Jaxi123, my decision to use Dr. Dellon was based on reputation, proximity, and based on years of research and tests and pain!

I was disappointed in some of the comments posted in this forum regarding Dr. Dellon's not so successful results, but everyone is different and surgery might not be right for you. It was a no- brainier for me.

I am certain that I made the right decision. I was in so much pain even with MSCONTIN and Vicodin.

The reason I posted this was I wanted to share my experience so others can weigh and decide their surgical options.

I do not want to get into pissing contests with others regarding this, so this will be my last post in this forum!

Best wishes

Frank

Frank, I'm glad you are doing so well after your surgery. I really hope that if a year from now you feel the surgery was worth it that you will come back to the forum and give us an update. It always gives people hope when someone reports positive results.

All the best,

Violet

i am in the same boat .....had 4 nerve blocks but what supposed to have 5 but cancelled my last ones as they were only lasting 2 days or so. My doc now says the next step is surgery I am in Canada and there are no surgeons in Canada. My specialist wants me to see the surgeon in France. I do not want to go there. Terrified of flying. so I now have to research the doctors in the States. I don't even know where to start to do research on these docs and there stats etc. Can some one help me?

Thanks Julie

Hhi Julie,
You can check the USA sectionof the forum and doctor list off the home page. Besides Dr Dellon as noted in this thread some others are Dr Conway, Dr Hibner and Dr Marvel. Yoi can search for each doctor in the roght upper corner search of these forum pages to get more info. You may want to try some other non-invasive things like restorative exercise, mind body, or ESWT before surgery? Again search for info on those. Good luck.
