Can having bone marrow biopsies and a bone marrow harvest in hip/pelvis possibly cause arthritis...? Been 20 years now.. Have mild to severe pain...

In brief: Hip arthritis.

Not likely related to bone graft harvest or bone biopsies.
These are usually iliac crest or areas away from the hip joint proper.

In brief: Not likely

Bone marrow biopsy/harvest is not done in the area of a joint so arthritis is not likely.
Pain may be coincidental. Go get checked out.
