I had to have 13 I.V.'s in one week because my veins were too senstive to the medication. The ancef inj burned fiercly everytime I took it and I contacted the doctor every time. I was told that it was all normal aside from the several side effects I was having as well.

I have a bacterial infection stemming from staph, I received an inj and it wasn"t so bad . I have a pencillin allergy and fortunately, this didn't give me an allergic reaction.I feel that my condition is improving.
