Bone marrow is divided into red marrow mainly constituted of hemopoietic cells and fatty yellow marrow. As you age, red marrow converts to yellow marrow. In some situations, yellow marrow may be converted into red marrow and this process is called marrow reconversion.   Although the cause of red marrow reconversion may be do to a pathologic process, it may also be triggered by stress or acute blood loss.  If your work up is negative to date, your doctor will likely recommend observation with a repeat work up in approximately 6 months.
