Default Laser Therapy - A Non-update update

Hey all,

Well, we opted not to laser Teagan. Long story short, we weren't at all comfortable with the physician doing it. There were a myriad of issues which I could go into here in great detail, but I'll spare you all the drama.

We've been recommended to another physician by our pediatrician - unfortunately this doc is in the same group as the one we walked out on, but he comes highly recommended by a family member who also had a hemangioma, so we're going to see what he says.

I've been reading a lot lately about steroid therapy and propranolol therapy, and I'm curious to hear what experiences you've all had with either course of treatment. Anyone?
