In brief: It depends
Some complications from blood transfusions may persist for life, like an alloantibody against red blood cell antigens, specially anti-d.
Others like hemolysis or fevers may solve in hours after stopping the transfusion.

In brief: Usually
Most symptoms from a blood transfusion such as fever, chills or itching are limited and resolve quickly.
More information about the complication would be required to answer more completely.
