Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Leucopenia and thrombocytopenia is common after chemotherapy, it is because of bone marrow depression. Not all leucopenias will require treatment, some of them will recover on its own.
Please get back to me with the values of the Hb, WBC and platelet count so that I can help you with the management

I hope to hear from you soon

Regards
