Thanks Yorkielove and Jess!
So interesting when you track it! I had a very similar pattern to you, and I think that is really interesting. I found this one other log once where the girl had almost the exact same breakout pattern as me, which is where I got my day 100 clear prediction from. She had made this little graph, and when I compared it to my notes (I kept notes every ten days), it was almost identical. She cleared up a little before day 100, and so did I! Super weird.
Anyway - you are looking super. The marks that remain have that nice healing colour to them, and it will be no time before they fade away! Super yay! I am so glad for all of us that we are making it through to the other side now. How much longer do you plan to go? What cumulative dose are you aiming for?
Kim, I think you and I were inspired by the same log, I think her username was Quiescence, maybe? Research and data analysis soothes me. My acne has been so chaotic, no pattern, no known cause, no known correlates, no known variables. If anything, I am at least comforted by the notion that my acne follows a pattern now and is altogether predictable (again, assuming it follows the same path).
Of course, when I mentioned to my dermatologist that I thought there was a cyclical pattern to my acne flare-ups now that I've started accutane, he screamed in a pirate of penzance-y sort of English Accent:
"Pish-posh and poppy cock! Accutane throws all that cycle nonsense out of the window you silly little woman! Hmph! There are no cyclical patterns to how accutane works. Hmph! ACCUTANE IS ABOVE YOUR MEANINGLESS STATISTICS GIRL! Tell her nurse. Tell her. Harumph Hmph"
Giving her best Natasha Fatale impression, the nurse turned, looked at me sternly and said: "You. Know. NATHEENG".
Well....ok. That wasn't how that situation went - obviously - but wouldn't it be cool if it did? Basically he said I was wrong. But - I'll show him. I'll show them all! Muahaha!
Ok, sorry Kim - I had a silly moment. To answer your questions: My doctor recommended I stay on my course for at least 2 months after I have become clear of inflammed acne. He predicted the total course would take about 5 or 6 months. So, I am hoping, if my progress remains good, it will only be a few more months. At 6 months, I should be just over my 130mg/kg, so that makes sense to me.
