I'm pretty sure this is referring to hemoglobin count.

I was too anemic so my first 2 infusions included iron drips. 4 months later and I was told my blood counts are good. Can he get iron drip?

What was your hemoglobin levels and did you take any iron supplements

about his  blood test results and whether the  10.5 hemoglobin count is raising  any red flags?   Although it   seems a bit low you could be worrying needlessly. I would think that if the oncologist feels he is developing  severe anemia,  he or she   might order an intravenous iron infusion, but that's something you and your father   would need to discuss with the medical team.  I can't offer any personal advice based on my  experience since I never had a problem with  low counts. My hemoglobin   count before surgery was  13.4  and been around  12.7 since surgery.

Everyone is different on getting their levels back if they have fallen.  Some of mine actually took about year after treatment before it was near normal.  My WBC never came back.  You need to talk to his doctor about if they feel there is a concern.  Whenever my blood was taken, if even some were low, my doctor would be the one to tell me if there was need for concern.  You can even call the nurse just to ease your mind. Hope you get some answers sooner.
