Re: Urgent advice needed

NO WORRIES. The fever for the first infusion of this drug is almost a given and the flu-like symptoms too. It will never occur again. It seems its just the first one and that's it. It happened to me too. Next one she will just feel alittle funky but not like this infusion.
