In brief: Yes

People need a performance status to go through transplant.
Ideally people should have healed from a broken hip before going through a transplant. Patients after transplant may need steroids and that can make the problem worse. Someone with myeloma or lymphoma needing an auto can have this issue addressed before a transplant to get better benefit

In brief: I think so

Survivors of stem cell transplantation are at increased risk of osteoporosis or weakening of the bones.
This complication is largely due to the treatment required during the transplant process, and the use of corticosteroids, which are used to treat graft-vs-host disease
