Can you tell me more about bone marrow donation; are there short/long term side effects?

Like giving blood: BM donors are given a drug to make bone marrow stem cells move into the bloodstream. That can cause bone aches for a few days. The cells are collected through a needle inserted into a vein. That site can be sore and you might be a little tired after donating. There are no long term side effects.
