Hematologist (Pediatric) Questions Chemotherapy

After chemotherapy my daughter's hemoglobin levels are dropping. Why?

The doctor has found a tumor on my daughter's collarbone, but it has been removed. She's now been on chemotherapy to treat any surrounding cells in that area, but her last blood test revealed that her hemoglobin levels are low. Why could this be happening?

Because of the chemotherapy. Talk to her doctors and the social worker working with her doctors.
Yes, with chemotherapy, hemoglobin can drop, and if it goes too low, she'll need a transfusion.
