Both of these questions must be answered as matters of degrees, Avi.
Osteoporosis is a range of loss. People can lose just a small percentage of calcium from the bone and it could be called osteoporosis. They could lose 50% of the calcium and still not know they have osteoporosis. When bones start breaking unexpectedly, you know for sure. I wouldn't recommend that someone with osteoporosis totally avoid all foods with oxalic acid. There are many positive factors in those foods too. In fact, some people suggest that the higher levels of oxalic acid in spinach, for example, are to protect the body from taking in too much calcium, as calcium is also high in spinach.
Waiting after a fatty meal also is an "it depends" answer. The quantity of food, the quantity of fat, the power of your digestive abilities, hunger, restedness, physical activities, and many other factors come into play in answering this question. Typically, I recommend not eating sweet fruits such as bananas for at least 4 hours after consuming fatty foods, but as you see, there are many potential variables to consider.
