I had my surgery 8 weeks ago and have experienced continued gout attacks and I'm limited on medications I can now take. When I don't have a flare up my toes and ankle swell throughout the day. Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice? Also I'm not eating anything that would cause a flare up and the allopurinol and colchicine don't stop the attacks from coming

I learned after a surgery years ago that anesthesia can cause gout. The only time I ever had gout was after that surgery. It can be helped by drinking more Water to help clear the uric acid from your from your body. I mean a lot of water. I have read drinking a tablespoon of Pure Apple Cider vinegar a couple times a day every day helps to break up the crystals in the joints that cause the extreme pain. I hope you get relief soon. Gout is the worst debilitating pain ever.

Drinking cherry juice and taking cherry pills helps my husband keep his gout at bay. When he lays off the cherry pills and juice and feels an attack coming on he takes a certain pill and the attack completely goes away. He tried other pills and they did nothing so I think it depends on the person what will work. I dont think it is ibuprofen based so it might be ok. He found the pill because his medicine wasnt working and one of his co-workers gave him on of his and they were like magic pills. I think I have a pic of them I'll look for it and post it.
