Sometimes in the hospital they use s/d, which is powder. Some people have more of a reaction to it. As well, the infussion rate could have been too high, or you could try a different brand. Did you have blood work done to determine if you are truly allergic, or just experience the reactions as many do. My son too had the aseptic meningitis reactions as well and now 3 years later we break the treatments up and it is not as bad. We have been weaning down and things may not be going that good. If so, we may have to get a couple of 4 day loads and I am not looking forward to the pukingm, fevers, pain, etc. Good luck with your surgery. Keep us posted
