    Sounds like you are not getting enough protein and have you tried Hair Skin and Nails pills? Have you seen a dermatologist? It may but may not be due to your surgery! Get a consult!!'

    Glenda-Welcome to the forum. It's nice to see someone a few years out from surgery. Are you getting your blood work done every 6 months or as recommended? Are you taking your multi vitamin and other recommended supplements everyday?

    Hi Glenda' Welcome. It sounds like vitamin deficiencies, if you haven't had blood work in the past year it sounds like itr is time ti get it checked to see what you are low on. Let us know what you find out. :cool: Tom
