    This happens, I think.
    It can happen. My wbc stayed around 2.0 for almost a year after finishing chemo. But then it very gradually went up. Now it hovers around 4.0 which is the low end of normal. Before the chemo my count was always around 6.0 or so. So I guess for some of us it will never be quite the same. But be patient, and check with your oncologist. It will be ok.
