Well to put everyone’s mind at ease – including mine – I went to my orthopedic doctor about my gout. This visit reminded me exactly why I keep going to her. She was on time, attentive, and spent the necessary time with us. More than that though, she was friendly, reassuring and comforting.
We talked at length about the drugs I’m using to control my arthritis and gout. We also talked about natural remedies like cherry juice, glucosamine (osteo bi-flex) and hot water baths with Epsom salt. She also talked about what to look for that should bring me back to her office.
It didn’t make my foot instantly better but it made my mood better. I realized I was doing the right things and I just needed to have patience with my body. It takes time to heal and apparently this time round it is taking more time than I’m used to.
Good visit and if you are looking for an orthopedic doctor in Madison WI, go to Dr. Holly Duck. She is an amazing doctor who takes great care of her patients.
