Answer

Most patients with Burkitt lymphoma are acutely ill and in the hospital at diagnosis. Their activities will be extremely limited at this time. As the patient responds to therapy, they can increase their activity appropriately. Patients with significant anemia will be limited by fatigue. These patients should appropriately restrict activities that require intense concentration. Patients with significant thrombocytopenia should not perform strenuous activities.
