Surgery AFTER accutane? advice please!

I recently finished my course of accutane and the results have been wonderful. Yes, I had the side effects but I also have clear skin. From horrible cystic acne to a few small red spots, the change has been dramatic.

A second ailment and a question. I've had chronic tonsillitis for the past seven years and have delayed getting a tonsillectomy, until now, that is. I'd like to get it done as soon as possible and start this spring strong and healthy.

My question, then: does anyone know the guidelines on surgery after accutane? I could have surgery in March, which would be two months after having stopped accutane. My doctors here in Japan are not particularly familiar with accutane and I haven't gotten a straight answer.

I know not to get any work done on my skin after accutane for up to six months, but what about minor surgery?

Any experience or advice would be greatly appreciated.
