Answer

Answer

A regular diet is usually adequate in individuals with lymphoblastic lymphoma. Patients who are neutropenic should not eat any raw fruits or vegetables. However, the following restrictions apply to patients with thrombocytopenia or neutropenia:

  • Instruct all persons to wash their hands before entering the room.

  • Use Toothette swabs for cleaning teeth.

  • Do not shave with a razor.

  • No intramuscular (IM) injections should be administered.
