Tracey,

It's a lot easier to understand blood counts than the results of a bone marrow biopsy. The blood count lab report will usually show your counts and indicate the normal range for each of them, so you know what's too high and what's too low.

Bone marrow biopsy reports, in contrast, are usually written by a specialist technician for the doctor to read. Patients usually can't make sense of them without asking the doctor. The a general practitioner without much experience with hematological disorders may not know what it all means either.

What are your blood count numbers? They may explain why you feel unwell.

Did you get some answers about what's wrong?
