18 months for me. Fatigue, fog, lungs, joint pain, lose of taste--seemed to persist and come and go as it chose. Seems to be an end in sight, but my tastebuds are shot (and bizarre).
Hoping things would return to normal, but accept the fact that it never will.

I just want to reinforce that if you supress someone's immune system (as they do in organ recipients) then it significantly changes how effectively your body responds to foreign threats.

It isn't exactly surprising that someone who is immune suppressed has a suppressed immune system.

Eh just get vaccinated.

Since the recipient is on probably 50 drugs for his immune system, he probably cant get vaccinated so thats why hes had covid symptoms for all this time.

No, statistically insignificant cases involving the flu typically don't make the news. But, calling covid the flu is not as wrong as the media would have you believe. It is a little wrong to call covid the flu, it is a lot wrong to call it a tractor tire.

Interestingly many long-haul covid cases respond very well to antidepressants.
