‘Only in a panic’: Badgers LB Maema Njongmeta details the heart health scare he faced last season |  college Football

Njongmeta said all doctors and trainers could tell him in the short term was that he wasn’t allowed to practice or play with the Badgers, and that more tests would be run. Those tests revealed that his EKG — a measure of the electrical signals from the heart — was altered by the effusion, but not as drastically as once thought. “That was probably one of the least good days, one of the worst days I’ve had on campus. Just panicking,” Njongmeta told reporters Wednesday. “Especially at the time, we didn’t know a lot about COVID, and so it was like, ‘All right, is this the end of the season, end of my career type situation?’ The doctors didn’t have any answers at that point other than, ‘Hey, you can’t practice or play until further notice.’ So that was definitely a rough stretch.”

Source Njongmeta underwent a heart scan after his COVID diagnosis, part of the Big Ten Conference’s protocol after a player contracted the virus. That scan revealed a pericardial effusion, or excess fluid between the heart and the sac surrounding the heart, and doctors were concerned it was caused by COVID.
