Get well soon. I don't know your age but at age 61 I am personally learning from experience we are not as young as we feel and it takes longer to heal and recover than before. Just have not completely grasped the concept that I am not 20 anymore back when I thought I knew everything and felt invincable. Lucky you had disability coverage. Smart move.
Now I have GOUT in my other foot... It sucks to get old. Gout is more painful than a broken ankle. Back in the chair
Got some gout pills that are helping quite a bit. This is my first battle with Gout. They say it is recurring. The biggest trigger for Gout is... Wait for it.... BEER!
This is NOT good.
Money is not the root of all evil, the love of money is.
OWWW ... EWWW ... gout is the worst kind of pain.
It's a buildup of uric acid crystals in the joint along with the tenderness and inflammation. It's associated with alcohol use but there can be different dietary triggers like dairy foods & meat proteins.
You wanna have the doc check your liver function and see if the bile ducts are blocked. You kinda need that liver thing to keep living.
I hope it passes soon pj.
My Father in law had it. They ended up removing a toe as there was no bone left. I still remember at one appointment when they drained his toe it was like cottage cheese that they were squeezing out of it. The VA even had other doctors and nurses come in and see, as it was a lot! After I took him home I had a beer! LOL
