Default Propranolol for 4 mo old

My son was born with the hemangioma and the derm & plastic surgeon said it has to get smaller in size (approx. 6-7 cm in diameter) before they will remove it. Since birth it's flattened out and not so hard & red. My husband and I were opposed to using Propranolol since my son's type of hemangioma does not respond to this medicine. Anyway, I just want to know other people opinions, concerns, experience in regards to Propranolol. FYI My son also has a minor cleft palate that requires an operation to fix so I just want to minimize the amount of surgery, medicine, hospital stay, etc. he is going to be exposed to.

Thank you - Rebecca
