Good afternoon,

I'm 3.5 post-op and am 54 years old. I've had acne my whole life. I had surgical menopause at 40. Since losing 62 pounds my acne has flaired up. I'm getting in my scalp more than my face right now. I've taken antibiotics several times before.

Is this from hormones secreting after weight loss? I can't handle this and may have to go see the Dr.

Thanks!

I am 49 years old and my dietitian told me it's from hormonal changes. I am getting a lot, they are popping up by my hairline, lips, eyebrows pretty much all over my face and they hurt when I touch them.

Hmmmm, that's interesting. I'm six months post-op sleeve and am almost identical to you (54 years old, surgical menopause/hysterectomy at 30) and I've lost 50 pounds, but I haven't had the acne issue or felt hormonal yet. Hang in there.

I started having acne too, and I thought my face has gotten oilier from the new foods I'm eating after the surgery. I changed my moisturizer and face cleanser to oil free. From Oil of Olay, I am now using Water base Nutrigena moisturizer and I forgot the brand of my cleanser and I'm at work right now. But in any case, people are noticing that my face has cleared and glowing too they said.. ha! Hope it continues to clear.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
