Flu-like symptoms

How long do the flu-like symptoms last? I had my booster infusion on Wednesday and feel awful. If this lasts a week, and I have infusions every three weeks, I won't have much good time.

Hydrate hydrate hydrate. Mine only lasted 24 hours I am feeling better with each treatment

That's what I'm doing, and taking Tylenol and Benadryl.

Seconding the hydration! If you don't already, ask your doctor to include saline in your script..it helps me tremendously with side effects. I'd say it usually is a few days of flu like symptoms for me.
