Hi Al B!
For severe cases, there is probably a higher risk for long term consequences. If that’s also true for mild cases is very speculative. And if that is even permanent no one can tell at the moment. For light cases, at the moment, it seems that there is not much risk for long term consequences. But unfortunately, there are some small case reports or CT- studies, that show dramatic changes to the lung tissue. That can lead to too many worries in the public. At the moment it’s too early to make a reliable statement on this topic. There is so much new science and new studies published every day. It’s difficult to stay up to date, but I’ll post here, if there are any new informations on this topic.
What were your symptoms? How long? Fever?! Positive (and then negative) test? When did it start? What do you mean by “…my lung function still feels off…”?
I’m happy if I can help a bit. In the case of covid-19 I would really like to have more informations, but unfortunately there is a lot we don’t know.
