Walking pneumonia?
Exactly. Wouldnt be surpised that more people walking around with slight cough and pnuemonia. Good O2 saturations.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Until the scar tissue comes to haunt you later in life.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Or even subpar OxSat, considering we have hospital patients who are functioning surprisingly well with OxSat levels way below normal.

Read this description of a 20-year old who had mild covid-19 symptoms in March, a positive antibody test in April, and was hospitalized in May with the covid-related inflammatory disease recently described in children.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/21/opinion/mis-c-coronavirus-children.html

So there may be health consequences that don't show up till two months after infection. 
Might there be other health consequences after 6 months? 

Hmmm... Let me look that up.... 

Oh, never mind, I'll just ask here:  Did you have covid-19 six months ago?  Any lingering symptoms?
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

What is already known and what are long term concerns about lingering effects of COVID-19 after recovery or for those who have had mild no clear known symptoms?
I would include long term effects and morbidity of any intubation.
We have seen articles about effects on the lungs of young people with few symptoms. Are there any follow up studies about how those healed over time?
We have seen reports of the virus residing in testicles. What kind of effects can that have on future fertility and future birth defects?
Scary. Just bought an Oximeter

Yup.  There are days my SaO2 goes down to 94% even though I had the virus over 2 months ago.  Symptoms still flare up every few days.

What was your baseline? 95 is within normal range.

Hearing anecdotally from my friends who are recovering (who were inflicted to varying degrees) that they are working on building lung capacity back up - but again, this is anecdotal, and I can't definitively tell you how different this is from any other person who's been laid up in bed for a month.

This seems like an appropriate thread to resuscitate, based on a few recent posts regarding long term effects of covid:

1. Ergel posted this article Covid-19 Can Last Several Months from The Atlantic, on long term effects of covid

2. Lurker posted this article http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/282581 from Israel
The article shows how 50% of the non-serious cases actually have greater internal damage, with potentially long-lasting health implications. Considering the social and economic impacts of a nation with potentially life-long health issues, I'd say we have every reason to keep as many people as possible from getting infected at all.


3. I've recently heard about the following cases
male, about 40, used to work out with a trainer, now gets winded after less than 10 minutes of activity
female, about 40, experiencing chronic pain on her side since having COVID
male, 60s, having visual problems since COVID

Yet @ExGingi and @Kobe bryent each say they know about 100 people who have no long-term problems.  Do they really have no more symptoms, or they just haven't mentioned them?   It would be helpful if those with many recovered friends could ask them specifically whether or not they have any remaining symptoms from COVID-19, and post the results here.  Maybe DDF will contribute another breakthrough, like the early discovery of loss of smell as a symptom.  ;)

The Gedalia Society might have actual data on this.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Very hard to be objective when there is the potential for psychosomatic symptoms after an illness. There are tens of thousands of people who claim to have chronic long term impacts from Lyme disease. Some may be real but there is little objective clinical evidence. Have to wait for studies that measure lung function etc. to draw any reliable conclusions.

Yes, we can get to that question in another thread. Here we're looking for long-term physical or mental health issues related to having had covid.
