Default Does Propranolol work?

My 2 yo has a rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma (rich). After steroid therapy, 6 laser treatments, and an MRI. The rich diagnosis has been confirmed and my only treatment option ( which is experimental with a rich) is propranolol as the laser has been uneffective. This is my first time on this website . Iam feeling a bit defeated. My son has been through a lot in the last 2 years ( as I am sure many of you champion parents can relate) and I am looking for some support / reassurance that starting him on this drug is the right thing to do.
Has anyone had luck with the drug?
