Scar tissue and FU 6

Scar tissue and FU 6

Posted by Lou Ann on October 11, 2000 at 22:41:04:

I had a CT re-release done on 8-3-2000 as my left hand had started to atrophy 9 years after the first release. My scar is from the middle of my palm down 2 ins. past my wrist due to the amount of damage to nerves, etc. My scar is raised quite high and I have a lot of swelling and pain so the hand surgeon said he could inject it. I'm hinking, okay, cortizone but he walks in with the chemo drug FU 6 and says that quite afew people have gotten scar reduction and relief from swelling from the injections. Has anyone heard of this or used it? I'm also concerned (I forgot to ask him!) whether the FDA has okayed the use of FU 6 for this purpose as my HMO won't pay for it if they haven't.
Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Lou Ann
