Aspiration long term effects

Not sure where to post this.  During surgery in May I aspirated from anesthesia. I have been hospitalized since then,  lots of medication, Asmanex, Advair, Singulair, Prednisone, Lasix, Cozaar, ALbuterol just to name the ones I can remember.

How long will it take for me to recovery?  What are the long term effects?

This is an amazing length of time to be hospitalized for aspiration pneumonia.  I note no mention of antibiotics and wonder if you have, not only a non-infectious inflammatory pneumonia, but also a bacterial pneumonia, with or without lung abscess.  Recovery should have occurred by now and the long term effect on pulmonary function, evident.  You and a family member, to serve as your advocate, should arrange to conference with your pulmonary doctor, assuming you have one, to try to get an answer to these questions in addition to the question, "Why has this taken so long?"
