Thanks Keith and other poster for such detailed replies,
I have asked the doctor for a referral to a Nephrologist on 2 occasions but been told they only deal with CKD stage 4 or 5. Mine is stage 3B but I think I am falling foul of NHS spending cuts. I have attended a Urologist clinic once since my op, I only saw the nurse not the consultant. Only advice I received about gout was not to eat game! I have been told that a urologist consultant is probably not the best to advise about gout anyway, so I am on the verge of paying to privately see a Nephrologist if my gout continues to cause me problems, from what you have said he should fill in the gaps that I have in my gout medication plan.
I will ring my medical centre to see if I can get a historic UA record. I remember a while ago the doctor saying that my blood test did not show gout but that it did not mean I have not got gout.
Thanks again for your advice
