Need mor einformatio: You need to tell us about what made you go to see your doctor in the first instance and why was a bone marrow done? Unless you have some blood disorder, we can not interpret your chromosomal change(karyotype). You will be better off asking your doctor what it means now that he has given you this worry some report.
