In brief: Depends

Immune recovery after chemotherapy depends on the chemotherapy type, combination, dose/intensity, duration as well as the characteristics of the patient.
Some chemotherapies have long lasting immunosuppression such as Fludarabine whereas others wear off faster. Some therapies cause specific immune risks -- eg, Bortezomib and shingles/zoster or Alemtuzumab and cmv.
