Hi everyone. I'm a 50 year old male with sct. Last year I was hospitalized for a week do to a crisis and was told I have extensive bone marrow necrosis. Dose anyone have any information about this condition? Any info will help.

In bone marrow necrosis, there is poor circulation of oxygen and nutrients to the bone marrow cells , causing the cells to die. Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside some of your bones, such as your hip and thigh bones. I would suggest getting home oxygen, even if saturation is good, our cells need more, I have it for comfort basis at level 2. Get rid of stress any stress level is detrimental to our health. See if you can find a naturopath. They are amazing

Hope this helps.
