low white blood cell count for 3 months

After using Temodar for 6 weeks (for brain tumour) my sons white blood cell, platelet count dropped dramatically. For 2 months in 0,03 range. Started picking up the last month. Reaching 0.69 at highest. Been in hospital 3 months now. Did a bonemarrow biopsy 1 month ago. After the 2 months a bonemarrow biopsy was done and shown 5% activity. But after the biopsy the dr said he convinced the bonemarrow showing more activity. It's been going up so slowly every week. We keep a chart. We not keen for a bonemarrow transplant now as he has been very sick with infection twice. Want to give him all the chance to see if he can recover by himself. Are there patients that share the same story?

It's been known for a while now that cancer can be and has been ...
