I started to have serious acne problem on my face and neck about 2 months post-surgery. (I was completely off Prednisone by then.) Family doctor and dermatologist put me on antibiotics and prescription cream. Condition improved after 2 months. But now I have lots of acne scars on my face. Not very nice.
Besides acnes, loss of hair and itchy skin around my wafer, I am a happy girl after my surgery.
