jhllal Posted August 29, 2005 Share Posted August 29, 2005 My dad had a mild heart attack last week. The doctor said that he could not perform tests to assess the damage as they are invasive and would be prevented from doing so on account of the chemo. They will not be able to give him blood thinners. My dad is scheduled for chemo tomorrow, although we do not know if he will acctually have it. Has any one had any experience with heart attacks and chemo? What should I be asking the oncologist? What should I be concerned about? I am also worried that the cancer may have advanced to his heart. DOes anyone know if there are signs of this type of progression?
