In brief: Variable
Usually you see some recovery in a could of months but occasionally platelet levels will stay sub normal especially if your pelvis was radiated.

In brief: It depends
Platelets often return quickly after treatment.
You have a lot of reserve so that bleeding due to low platelets is less common. Some chemo drug do reduce the platelets for a longer time than others, so it depends on the drug and the amount of radiation.
