Many!: Risks are lower if you had your own cells (autologous) or a twin's cells (syngeneic), and higher if you had someone else's (allogeneic). There are short-term and long-term risks. Risks include graft vs host disease, infections (some fatal), liver problems, bleeding, cataracts, infertility, heart damage, lung damage, kidney damage, and others.
