Hi,
Chemotherapy does have its own adverse effects and marrow toxicity is more common  with most  drugs of this type. It should take some time for WBC cells and other blood cell lineages to develop and recover from the toxicity.

If your WBC were persistently low after previous chemotherapy, and if they caused fever, infection, or other symptoms, then you may discuss with your doctor the need for giving G-CSF after the next chemotherapy.
G-CSF (Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor) and help reduce the duration when your WBCs are low.
