This may work:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/doc/(.*)
    RewriteCond %{LA-U:REMOTE_USER} ^(.+?)\d*$
    RewriteRule ^/doc/(.*) /doc/%1/$1 [NS]

Here you capture the username without trailing numbers in the condition, and
then use it in the rule.

If the username cannot have numbers in them, except the trailing ones (like
1337user12345), you should change the second condition's pattern to
"^([^\d]+)". Do use this pattern if you can.

If you have problems with the above, please explain the exact rules for how
a valid username can be constructed.
