Re: Mid Foot Fusion/Gout and walking
Yes it is very normal to have pain and swelling when you start weight bearing. Follow your doctor's orders, but don't overdo it. You're going to have some pain, but you shouldn't be in agony. Let pain be your guide and back off if you need to. It took me 2 weeks to go from NWB to FWB. The gout doesn't help I know. I don't have experience with it really so not sure what to tell you. I'm sorry! Hope it feels better soon!
