Myelofibrosis is an affliction characterized by the replacement of bone marrow with scar tissue. This scarring then causes the bone marrow to not be able to produce the sufficient amount of red blood cells for the body to function properly. Other complications can come about from this condition, such as anemia and higher risk of infection. Other symptoms include fatigue, bone pain, easy bleeding/bruising, and pale skin. The spleen can also become enlarged and cause the abdomen to feel uncomfortably full. Myelofibrosis progresses very slowly, with all other complications following the same pace.
As with all cases of cancer, the large amount of surgeries and therapy will debilitate an individual severely.
Myelofibrosis and Social Security Disability Benefits Help
If the applicant’s impairment falls within any of the following categories set forth by Social Security’s Listing 7.10, then a strong claim may exist. The Listing is as follows;
7.10 Myelofibrosis (myeloproliferative syndrome). With:

Any type of cancer is very hard for an individual to deal with. The treatment methods will cause these sufferers to be hospitalized for extended periods of time, not allowing them to maintain any type of schedule. Also they will suffer from debilitating fatigue as a result of not only the illness, but the various therapies as well. Most cancer patients often suffer from depression, due to the severity of their condition. Given all these different factors, any type of work would be overwhelmingly difficult.
