Nice to hear you're recovering nicely! At this point, no dangerous complications will occur. There could still be risk of "long covid", but probably not if you're feeling well and have normal energy, appetite, and mental functioning. It could take several weeks for chest xray abnormalities to clear, but that doesn't matter if you are breathing normally.

Complications take longer to resolve and patients still have problems with taste months after . Good Luck
