Wait: The chemo will wear off. If you have spontaneous bleeding, report this to your oncologist. Otherwise, do nothing and follow their advice. They know what they're doing. Low platelets occur commonly with many chemotherapeutic agents.

If you're spontaneously bleeding, you may need a transfusion, but your doctor should be your primary source of information/advice.
