Ever since my surgery 7 months ago, my face has broken out. Not just regulag acne. But painful, constant white pustules. They are small and through out the day randomly pop up around my mouth, nose and recently between my eye brows.
I found out last week I will have to have my 3rd neck surgery due to compression from my ACDF. I now have a bone spur pressing on my spinal cord C7/T1 right side. The pain has been worse than before the ACDF. They did a CT to confirm my fusion is complete and MRI to see why I am in so much pain again. Since I'm fused my Dr placed me on steroids, which in the first day relieved most all of my pain and cleared up my face. Now that I'm off the pain and swelling has returned. Plus the painful acne is back. Has anyone had this problem? I'm so frustrated to have to deal with another surgery when I haven't even fully recovered physically. I am just happy to be able to work part time to keep my mind occupied on things other than the pain.
I'm posting this just to see if there might be a possibility that I'm having a reaction to the stuff in my neck. I've been very slow to heal. I have redness that will appear on my neck around the surgical sight and I just feel like the acne is from the hardware.
