Hi, thanks for the information.

I haven’t been seen by a cardiologist just yet. Prior to radiation therapy i did have some palpitations. I had an echocardiogram in march which was ok and just recently (2 days ago) had an ekg which was good.
Don’t know for sure if this is because of radiation therapy.

It wouldn't hurt to get it investigated by a cardio-oncology specialist. Radiation can effect the heart, but then so can stress. 😕
