Burkitt's Recovery Tip #2

Burkitt’s Lymphoma Recovery Tip #2

Get your heart checked out before you go too crazy. One of the nastier and insidious side effects of all the chemo you received is that you heart may go on the fritz for a while. Pay special attention to the Ejection Fraction ( a good definition is available at (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ejection_fraction) . Surviving Burkitt’s chemo and then dying of a heart attack or stroke is just too sad. The good news is – at least for me – the further you get away from the chemo the more things return back to normal (relative term I guess). Get you ticker checked and ask you doc lots of questions.
