Recovering from COVID has been a long and sometimes painful journey for countless Americans.

Ashley Varol contracted the virus early on in the pandemic.

But almost a year later, things aren't getting any easier.

There are times when she suddenly develops large swollen masses on her body.

Ashley says doctors can't figure out what's wrong, but say they're complications from COVID.

Lingering symptoms aside though, Ashley hopes to be doing better as the year unfolds.
