Yes I would like structured gout help please.

I believe I’ve given a decent amount of backstory, here and on the Help My Gout topic that I made (if you recall?)

So as of now that blood test was 1 week ago, showing 576 umol/L . Liver and Kidney seem to be fine. A bit high suger (I think it was triglycerides?) and a bit high cholesterol but nothing crazy.

Like I say, I had surgery to remove the crystals on my left foot, 3 weeks ago. It was very bad.

And now it is attacking my right foot. I know I’m probably not supposed to do this, but I am using colchicine and indomethacin on top of the Allopurinol I started last week (Tuesday May 16th I believe). Oh and I should note, the colchicine and indo don’t really work on me anymore. BUt I gotta do *something* …

I am going back to work very soon as a Plumber and need that foot in working order or it is going to be extreme pain, as I am used to for the last 5 years, but I would rather get it fixed or taken care of asap, obviously.

THat’s about it for now I think, thanks!
