In brief: Varies a lot

The hospitalization duration for a bone marrow transplant varies a lot, depending on the type of complications, such as infections and graft vs.
Host reactions, one has after the transplant. A rough estimate is 6-12 weeks. Sometimes, problems occur after leaving discharge, and a patient has to go right back into the hospital.

In brief: Varies

Transplantation is a complicated process, and it is difficult to make predictions.
The hospitalization is sometimes quite long (months). Your doctors should explain all of this to you when you consider a transplant.
