Can be very diverse: The immediate and long term effects of being born premature greatly depends on the level of prematurity as well as every factor associated with pregnancy, birth, and care afterwards. The list of possible effects, complications, outcomes, is much greater than 400 characters. You can research some info from the American Academy of Pediatrics or discuss with your pediatrician and/or neonatologist.
