Hey guys! I’m new here, but here’s a little bit about my story. In May of this year I broke my foot in 3 places that required surgery. 2 plates and 13 screws later and I was put back together. My hives appeared mysteriously 2 weeks after surgery. At the time we thought it may be from the pain meds, which I immediately stopped. The hives didn’t disappear so I made a trip to the dr. Was told there was no explanation for the hives that they were caused by my body being under stress from the surgery and recovery. Well here it is 4 months later and I still get hives if I don’t take a daily Zyrtec. Zyrtec is the only thing that keeps them at bay. If I forget to take it the hives pop up….. has anyone here developed hives after a surgery? Has anything seemed to cure them?
