scar tissue after plantar fibroma ?

Scar tissue: This is the usual nightmare for plantar fibroma excision. If this occurs i usually start aggressive physical therapy with steroid injections. I also add the cutting edge laser which breaks down scar tissue (10 sessions, once a week, 15 min a session).

Certainly: Possible. Some advocate transdermal verapamil to help reduce scaring or fibrosis.
