Bone marrow is the flexible tissue found in the interior of bones. In humans, red blood cells are produced in the heads of long bones, in a process known as hematopoesis. On average, bone marrow constitutes 4% of the total body mass of humans; in an adult weighing 65 kilograms (140 lb), bone marrow accounts for approximately ...Read more

Your doctor can guid: You will need to be guided by the folks who have asked you to give bone marrow. Most often the procedure is done with help from a blood bank located in a hospital. The national marrow donor program (nmdp) is an organization with whom you can connect on the internet and seek further guidance. ...Read more
Many: Bone marrow makes red cells that carry oxygen, white cells that protect you from infection, and platelets that stop you from bleeding. If bone marrow suppressed you will have anaemia-low red cells cause fatigue, infections since low white cells, and bleeding caused by low platelets. It can range from no symptoms-mild to severe. All depends on severity of the suppression. ...Read more

It is not too bad: There are 2 different ways bone marrow (stem cells) can be given to someone. One is quite simple and has literally no pain (it is called peripheral stem cell collection by apheresis). The other, more commonly used in the past, is true bone marrow donation which requires general anesthesia in order to draw the bone marrow from the hip bones and does cause more discomfort than the blood stem cell coll. ...Read more
Stem cell collection: Some times stem cells for transplant can be collected from an IV in your arm. This process involves a medication, g-csf, which increases the stem cells. This medication can cause flu-like symptoms and bone pain. Then the cells are taken, similar to giving blood or platelets. ...Read more

Not enough cells: The bone marrow is the factory of the blood -- all blood cells begin life there. The "normal" amount of cells decreases with age, so we estimate normal as 100 - (age) +/- 20%. So, if a 50 year old has 50% of the space in the bone marrow filled with cells, we say this is normal. If it were 25%, it would be hypocellular. However, if a 90 year old had 25% cellularity, it is probably normal. Helps? ...Read more
The donor for a transplant typically gives peripheral blood stem cells rather than bone marrow. This involves getting some shots under the skin for a few days and then cells are collected from the blood. There usually is not much discomfort.
Bone marrow harvests require anesthesia so the donor does not feel discomfort during the collections but may have mild-moderate sitffness or soreness. ...Read more
A little.: The actually collection of blood stem cells uses a machine connected to the donor through a needle in a vein, and is much like donated blood and not painful. To get the stem cells into the blood stream, donors are given neupogen, a drug to force stem cells into the blood. That drug can cause bone aching for a few days. It feels much like body aching when you have the flu, if it occurs. ...Read more
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
