Hope this info is helpful
My lovely, kind and funny surgeon was Dr Dominique Jonet and all the hospital staff are very kind and supportive. My French is ok but lets me down when stressed but Dr Jonet will happily switch to English if necessary, although if particularly busy he will automatically speak French so you might need to ask him to speak English.
There always seemed to be at least one member of the nursing staff who spoke English.
My oncologist consultant is Mme Patricia Burban-Provost at St Brieuc who does not speak English but is very nice.
With both Dr Jonet and Dr Burban I found it very useful to go with a list of questions in and English and translated to French so that I did not forget anything.
Between my husband and myself we managed but we did find that when we got home sometimes we had doubts about some of what we thought we had understood. At the end of the day this is a very stressful time and my advice would be to take an interpreter with you that is fluent. It can be very upsetting if your surgeon or doctor is a bit short or impatient with you because of the language barrier - he won't mean to be but they have very long full days are only human after all.
I hope this is helpful and I'm happy to answer any questions that might help other members.
