DB IN RECOVERY STATUS IN SQL2005

Hi,
our db is quite huge, the transaction log before we shutting down the box reached at 140GB in size, so after we restart the services the db went to in recovery mode. I have been waiting for 7 hours and it look recovery stuck at 59% since then.
So I decided to stop this progress by stopping sql services then make the db in suspect mode so that I can set db in emergency status.
But now if I want to bring this server back to online ( attach ) and force sql server to online with new log file, what actually will happens to my 140GB trans log size, are we going to says those uncommitted trans will  missing from the db due to this kind of recovery technique ?
