In brief: Varies
This varies but for people who are cured of their cancer and don't die from a complication of the transplant they are expected to have a normal life expectancy.

In brief: It depends?
Prognosis in hsct varies widely dependent upon disease type, stage, stem cell source, hla-matched status (for allogeneic hcst) and conditioning regimen.
A transplant offers a chance for cure or long-term remission if the inherent complications of graft versus host disease, immuno-suppressive treatments and the spectrum of opportunistic infections can be survived.[19][20] in recent years.
