Can i safely go on amusement park rides with an EF of 40?

Hi I am a breast cancer patient, I am currently on Herceptin (I finished 20 rounds of taxol/herceptin then AC). The herceptin has caused my ejection factor to drop to 40, I am currently on meds to increase it so i can resume the herceptin. Can I safely go on amusement park rides with an ef of 40?

yes u can. But though EF is moderate but u have higher chance of cardiac arrhythmia even at at rest. but u should be aware about the higher chance of arrhythmias. ur EF will mainly improve with holiday time from Perception if it was normal before t/t. you should not get another dose until ur EF improves.
