I'd say it's a good sign that you are noticing at least some of the smell/taste function returning (likely no permanent neuron damage). I know some have reported good results with "smell therapy" for helping to expedite the return. I believe some docs have used a targeted steroid treatment via nasal solution (lavage/irrigation) in some (more severe/prolonged?) cases. Might ask your doc about that if it persists.
