Facial Breakouts after Hsterectomy????

Hi!,
Any sisters out there had deep pimples breaking out on face? I am 3 months post-op and have had 6 deep, painful pimples in the last 2 weeks.. Really weird, because I hardly ever have a pimple.. Maybe one right before my periods before.... Just wondering if this is associated with this surgery?? Kathie

Kath,

I had some trouble with breakouts for a while after my hyster, also. The doctor had to adjust my thyroid medication and cut my HRT dosage in half. I was also prescribed some erythromycin pads to use for a couple weeks. Now my complexion is better than it's been in years!!

Oh my gosh this is happening to me right now. I can't stand it. I sell make up and even the skin stuff I have isn't helpping. What is this about just hormones out of wack? Karri

My dermatologist told me my skin would get worse after my hysterectomy, even though I kept my ovaries. I've been very lucky. Five months before surgery, I started taking Accutane for my acne. I took the last pill the morning of surgery. So far no breakouts. I didn't plan it this way, as surgery was scheduled very quickly. It just worked out to my benefit with the skin treatment. Hopefully, everyone's skin will settle down and we can look like the radiant princesses we are!

Did your Dr. tell you WHY the skin gets bad after a Hysterectomy? I don't understand.. I kept one ovary and was not at Menopause stage yet when I had surgery. Still have never had a hot flash... and my Thyroid is ok... I never have had any hormone levels checked tho... I feel like a TEENAGER! Even my teenager has better skin than I do at this moment... Really has me puzzled.. It's not just little pimples, its more like acne I guess ,,, large deep sore pimples that last a WHILE! NOT fun!! If it doesn't clear up soon, don't know whether to see a Dermotologist or an OB, or Family Practice... ,,, I was going to change OB Dr.s anyway at my yearly pap.. Kathie

A hysterectomy, even if you keep an ovary, will shake up your hormones. Your whole insides seem disrupted for a bit after surgery. My GP gave me the erythromycin pads. You could try either your GP or a dermatologist.

Good luck.

I just finished another post on this.... you guys might be experiencing rosacea symptoms. This is a common time for women who are prone to the disease to begin experiencing symptoms especially because "flushing" can bring it on. Ask your dr. about your symptoms. If these pimples that you are getting aren't exactly like the pimples you are used to getting, it could be rosacea. For most people, the condition is completely controlled with a topical medication (Metrogel), especial if you catch it early on. Don't wait to ask your dr. about it , rosacea can cause damage to your skin that is permanent. There is a world of info about rosacea at the National Rosacea Society web site. I am sorry I am not sure what the exact address is, but it shouldn't be too hard to find.....

All the best to you! Val

I thought I had outgrown this problem. I am 51. But NO........... !

In the past few weeks, have had a few big zonks on my face. It is embarrassing and devastating. Here I am, trying to feel "normal" again, and I have this.

Yuck !
