A member asked:

What causes ur numbers to be low during chemo and how can u get ur numbers up?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Cytotoxic: Chemotherapy will kill dividing cells - - cancer/lymphoma/leukemia count here, and why we use it, but bone marrow cells that make white cells and platelets are also bystanders effected. They naturally return in due time. There are "growth factors" that are very expensive that can accelerate rebound of marrow.
