dear naved,
yes, leukemia can be cured on chemotherapy, but the response depends on the type of leukemia, as some kinds of leukemia respond better to chemotherapy. you have to be patient as the treatment continues for around 2 and half too three .
at present you should restrain from sex as she has just gone into remission. and any further stress can cause problems to your wife. furthermore, let the platelet count stabilize for few months than you can probably think of this only after consulting your treating doctor.
