It varies greatly: Bone marrow has lots of reserve, so it can be partly diseased, yet the body has no effect. But once the bone marrow is completely diseased or damaged, then the body will have all kinds of effects in the form of anemia(low hemoglobin), low WBC and low platelet counts and the complications of infections and bleeding as a result of low blood counts.
