Major Acne since hysterectomy?

Anyone else having major acne problems after having surgery?

Again its been 7 months, and my face looks worse than it ever has. I don't know what to do about it. I've never had this many issues with my skin. My dh asked me the other day "what's going on with your face?". Yeah, thanks honey!

Another reason I think my hormones are all messed up!

Suggestions, am I alone in this? Especially this much after surgery.

I haven't had any acne issues, but I think you are absolutely right to suspect hormone issues - sure sounds like they are the culprit. Maybe go have your horomone levels checked, tell your doc of other symptoms and see if you should be on HRT (if not already) or the therapy should be managed differently...

Good luck!

Yep I had major acne for weeks, until I talked to the dr, they said it was stress from the surgery. I'm on tetricycline (sp) its working wonders, supposed to stay on it till its all gone, about two more weeks I guess.

Major Acne since hysterectomy?

I had my hyst almost a year and a half ago. I NEVER had any skin problems before (not even when I was a teenager). Now all the sudden I have acne like crazy. I went to the dermatologist yesterday as a matter of fact. He's trying some pills by mouth and topical stuff too. I'm hoping it works. I don't know how to deal with this.

I had acne before my surgery. Starting using Proactiv and have had a clear face every since. They have a website if you would like to look into it I think. Hope this helps!
