To clarify, the timings I mentioned are just a guess really. Because, in the absence of a uric acid DECT scan, it is almost impossible to tell when all old crystals have dissolved.

The problem lies in clumps of crystals coated in almost impervious coatings. I recall one recovering GoutPal member who went over a year with successful allopurinol treatment. Then he got a short-lived attack in the knee. So, it pays to keep the pain meds on hand until you reach the point where you can’t remember why you have them.
