I'm on accutane, and also due for foot surgery in April, by then I will have been off it for 1 month. I've heard things about accutane prolonging healing of the skin. Has anyone had any experiences with surgery and accutane. How long should you wait for surgery after being off accutane, and will 1 month off be too soon?
Thatís a tricky topic and you really need to talk to both the dermatologist and the surgeon. Accutane does slow down the healing process of your body and it can cause some problems with surgery, so you definitely need to talk to those two people before you do anything.
