How Soon After Scar Revision Surgery Can I Start With 5FU Injections?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I wanted to ask your opinion about the appropriate timing of intralesional 5FU to a post auricular scar- Is 8 weeks post surgery sufficient time to commence the intralesional injection?

A: 8 weeks is fine to start scar injections with 5FU, sooner would have been even better.
