May be normal: Swelling is a common part of any foot surgery. However, it has already been 10 months since your surgery. Swelling at this late stage may be normal but there may be some underlying process occurring. I would certainly recommend that x-rays be taken to determine whether or not the fracture of the metatarsal has completely healed. After an x-ray is been taking a greater interpretation can be made.

May be significant: If you try stretching before and after activity and apply ice after activity and the pain doesn’t improve, then you may have a significant problem that needs to be evaluated by a sports medicine specialist. In the differential diagnosis is calf Strain, calf tear, Achilles tendinitis, deep vein thrombosis. Either way, if the pain doesn’t respond to conservative measures as described above, then see a sports medicine specialist.

Colchicine: The best cure for gout is a two-step process. In the initial stages of gout, the best treatment is colchicine or an anti-inflammatory medication specific for the reduction of inflammation associated with gout. The long-term treatment however involves reducing the amount of uric acid in the blood. This either involves taking medication such as allopurinol or uloric. In addition, as gout is a disease associated with protein metabolism, it is a good idea to reduce the intake of rich foods and foods with high protein content like redmeat.
