Has anyone ever donated or given Bone marrow?

I really want to because of the benefit for another person, in fact i know I am going to register to be a donor, Im just a little scared.

Does it hurt, what kind of anesthesia usually is used? like put to sleep or just local?
Would It be safe for me if I am breast feeding?
Whats the recovery like?

  • I've never donated, but I am on the registry. I'm sure when you contact them they would be able to answer these questions.
