Smile Hi- new here praying for support and help with answers bone marrow biopsy results

Good evening. I am so glad that I found this at night. My health decline started in September of last year. Going into hypokalemic shot with severe dehydration and an ice tea you for three days. I was discharged with a sick gallbladder, pneumonia, bladder infection, plural effusion. I was readmitted two days later own and emergency basis four emergency surgery on gallbladder removal. From there my health has declined and I have lost over 50 pounds weighing in at 105 now. I ended up in cardiac intensive care in January with influenza A, blood pressure of 60 ever 30, hemoglobin seven, plasma 40. I have ongoing Low red blood cell counts, ongoing low hematocrit and up and down hemoglobin counts. They did a blood transfusion upon arriving at ER via ambulance with no radial pulse and my doctors were stunned I made it. A Hematoligist came on board telling me that in the future a bone marrow biopsy may need to be done. This was ordered a few weeks ago and Iím trying to understand the results because he said my bone marrow at ďthe presentĒ looked healthy, however that doesnít mean there isnít something brewing which is why he wants to continue following up with me. Low red blood cells carry oxygen to your organs and they have been low for quite some time. I also have breast implant disease (after having them removed I still have lingering silicone in my lymphnodes and body which upon research is highly linked to Lymphoma B. I wanted to share this part of my report which I have no clue what it means. I still donít feel I have answers! My family history of cancer runs ramped on both sides and Iíve had precancerous tissues removed from colon and hysterectomy because of dysplasia. Here is a note Iím trying to figure out- CORE BIOPSY: Histologic sections of the core biopsy demonstrate a
cellular bone marrow demonstrating features of maturing trilineage
hematopoiesis. Any help, advice - I would be so very thankful. My nerves are shot and Iíve got to be here for my children. Thank you in advanced! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

I wanted to let you know that I am sorry for all of the health issues you have encountered to date, but I think that the line you have a question about is actually ok news at this time.

CORE BIOPSY: Histologic sections of the core biopsy demonstrate a cellular bone marrow demonstrating features of maturing trilineage hematopoiesis.

All that this is saying is that in the core of your bone marrow, your bone marrow is showing normal blood cell production across white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets, thus trilineage. Hematopoiesis is just a fancy way of saying blood production. Cellular marrow is a bit of a generic term here and seems to indicate normal density of your bone marrow for your age, otherwise it would probably say hypo-cellular (not dense enough) or hyper-cellular (too dense).

Bone marrow issues are complex, and I think that a large part of the report is missing, so I don't think that you want to draw too many conclusions from this one excerpt. As always, ask as many questions as you can from your doctors so that they can help you through.
MDS RCMD w/grade 2-3 fibrosis. Allo-MUD Feb 26, 2014. Relapsed August 2014. Free and clear of MDS since November 2014 after treatment with Vidaza and Rituxan. Experiencing autoimmune attack on CNS thought to be GVHD, some gut, skin and ocular cGVHD. Neuropathy over 80% of body.
