I am currently in hospital suffering my 5th episode of viral meningitis and the neurologist is talking about putting me permanently on aciclovar, which I am currently having by IV. Has anyone else experienced taking the anti-vitals permanently and if so any possible side-effects ?

I had viral meningitis when I was 5 1/2 years old. I spent 4 months in the hospital...2 of those were spent in a coma in ICU. After a long rehab, I was able to walk and talk and get mostly back to normal. I have always had orthopaedic issues since. I have several surgeries as well as the bladder and kidney issues. Two years ago I had an Interstim Neurostimulator implanted because of the nerves and muscles in my lower back did not allow my bladder to empty. Kidney infections became a norm. Thankfully that has stopped! I am facing a knee...
