Posted by NoMoreDotToDot on 27 July 2013 - 12:08 PM

Just a really quick message from me. Glad things are looking up. I haven't had a single spot for ages now, my scarring is fading on my back is minimal and not noticeable and I am going out tonight with friends with flawless skin and actually having my back on show :o haven't had my back on show for 6 years. I feel amazing and you will soon too :)

Sorry to read you haven't quite got the results you wanted right now. Damn those hormones!! Hopefully this final month will blast it. Not long to go. :)

The difference between your earlier pictures to now are still amazing!

The journey has come to an end......

 

So after I have popped my last 3 pills tonight, I have finished my course!

I had an appointment on Tuesday. My consultant had to be somewhere so instead I saw the specialist Derm Nurse. She worked out how much I've had so far, and once calculated it said I have had the correct amount and they are no longer licensed to prescribe me anymore. I have literally just double checked this and I have taken approx 7,800 mg (I worked out at the beginning that for my weight I can take between min 7,200- 9,600mg max.) She mentioned about 125mg for my weight, and that's what I used to work out my overall dosage, so maybe in the UK they are only licened to prescribe the minimum amount. Okay, I feel a bit better now as I was worried she calculated it wrong.

It has literally been in the last week my back has been completely clear (woo!) so I was very reluctant to come off it but right there and then I had no choice. She has booked me to see the Consultant in two months time. Has also prescribed me Duac for any spots that may appear on my back and told me to call if my face breaks out again (think she was saying it more for reassurance, as she could see I was anxious).

   Whilst I'm nervous about coming off the (in my eyes) miracle drug, I can't wait to get rid of the sodding side effects. The one side effect I can't wait to go is my dry lips. Did not know the meaning of dry lips before now. Am quite excited actually lol! Just another month to ride out and should all be back to normal hopefully with still flawless skin.

 

I'm still gobsmacked at how clear my skin is. I am so, so lucky to be left with no scarring on my face and have no evidence whatsoever of acne. I have scarring on my back which they said will be discussed at my next appointment.

 

I cannot believe I'm at the end. Never thought I would reach the end when I began the journey and was envious of those further on in the treatment. Those in the early days who maybe suffering with IB, or side effects, just remember the long term goal. Those losing hope? Be patient, it will happen.

 

Not only has it fixed the outside of me, it has fixed me inside too. It has given me my confidence back. smile.png

Does everyone experience hair loss on Roaccutane? And is Roaccutane the UK version of Accutane? Never heard of accutane here in the Kingdom United. 

I haven't experienced any hair loss. It's a rare side effect. And yes, Roaccutane is the same as Accutane. Just us Brits call it Roaccutane! (company is Roche).

Well that's you and me both. Drink wine 1-2 x each week when I have company. Probably works out to 1.5 bottles in total per week.

Note: Please no one come and preach that I/we are damaging our bodies and about to drop dead, as it will go in one ear and out the other. I listen to just my Derm (and my blood results!) No one else that's not medically qualified ;)

Day 29

So, it's been a month! Has gone really quickly.
My pores have returned to normal size, and I still don't have any spots on my chest. Can't remember the last time this happened. So pleased. My back is clearing up slowly too.
The skin on my face looks a bit of a state at the moment. I had 6 actives on my forehead (never used to get them on my forehead), but have already gone after a day so left with just red patches. Keep getting pimples appearing around jaw line, up around the cheeks. I know it takes a while to see results, especially on the face, so am not complaining at all.
Side effects- Still dry, chapped lips. Had very small nosebleed since last entry. Experiencing joint pain, & have developed eczema/dermatitis on my arms. Will upload pictures later, if I remember smile.png
