Bruise easily during treatment period?

Just curious if anyone showed signs of easily bruising during treatment?  My doctor says it is not a side effect of the medicine, but I do not think it is a coincidence.

My Dad has that problem, but from looking through his records I see that it lists a coagulation defect.

Treatment is rough on the bone marrow, so the blood will suffer. Has your blood work shown low platelets? That is a frequent cause of bruising. If your blood readings are within normal range, it might be one of the rare side-effects listed for one or more of the drugs that you are receiving.
