Report I was approved for IV saline, how much over how long? in Dysautonomia Discussion Posted November 15, 2018 On 11/12/2018 at 9:13 PM, Pistol said: Great news, @Andy T! I also am experiencing only positive results from my IV fluids. The energy I have and the good numbers far outweigh the risks (I have a port). Wish more docs would listen to their patients and observe the actual benefits from this therapy!!!! Cheers, I too have a port (Hickman line). yes we do do have risks associated with a central line but without it, quality of life is much reduced.
