I just need to know if such side effects can occur from chemotherapy drug. Also, can such a drug produce some breakup of fat tissue so that tissue appears to fall away from the bone some? I will appreciate your answer. thanks

There are many, many different chemotherapy drugs available and each one of them has many different side effects, all of which vary from patient to patient.
In order to give you a useful answer I really need to know what drug you are talking about and more clinical information about the person or persons who had this side effect.
I hope you can understand this fact....
