Any gout sufferers out there?

Recommended Posts

Hi all~

Does anyone else suffer with gout? Mine appears to be familial in that no typical foods or drinks trigger an attack.

I have recently been put in Uloric $$$ because I had a reaction to cheap allopurinol. Oh and so far uloric pills aren’t working yet because I am sitting here in gout hell and taking prednisone. Ugh

I know being overweight can be a cause so I’m really hoping post RNY that I can possibly get off meds. However, my thin family members are all gout sufferers and take allopurinol daily.

Has anyone had gout go away (meaning lower Uric acid levels) post WLS?

Strange thing is, I just had someone ask me recently if I had gout...like it goes with gastric bypass. I don’t have it, but I’m curious now.

Yeah. But then I think it gets better.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
