I resently had an MRI for a herniated disc. When getting the report to take with me to meet with an orthopedic I noticed in the findings thaat it showed Fibrous marrow associated with myelofibrosis or smoking, obesity, certain anemic states. After reading up on mylofibrosis I am scared and lost. I do not know who to go to for further testing. I was a smoker for 15 years. I did this to myself? So now that I quit smoking will it resolve it's self and go away? I am not sure if this is something I need to be worried about. Don't know what to do from here. Why would a doctor who gavee me the results of my MRI not even mention this to me. So do that mean it is not a big deal and I shouldn't worry? Can anyone guide me?
