Hi Nobody

Ah thanks I understand now.
Yes it is difficult to estimate the timeframe before you are completely cured if that is really possible.
I am understanding now that this is a long term treatment, as I have never been on “lifelong medication” it sort of scares me.
Sad to hear your experience with the doctors.
I will keep your advice in mind, so need to do more UA and kidney/liver tests and see levels first after my first treatment with Allopurinol.
So 3 months may be too short , lets see how long it takes before my toe becomes normal again, its been 42 days since my first attack and my toe is still not back to normal again and now the second attack aaargh.
So 22 days on Allopurinol (16 days on Colchicine)
So only half the time I was on Allopurinol and the other half on Indocid and Predisnone.
Here’s holding thumbs.
By the way what area did you get gout in ?

Thanks for the speedy reply as usual 🙂
