What do I lose when I use eseutil /p to recover my database, Exchange 2010

I have a restored Exchange 2010 database that has some corrupted log files and so I'm left with eseutil /p to get it to a Clean Shutdown state.  Is there any way to discover how many transactions I've lost?  How bad is it that I cannot recover the log files?  Thanks.

You won't have anyway to track how many emails you have lost. If you can get it to a clean shutdown state you can start the re-generation of the log files.

This is a really good guide that walks you through it:

If you are using eseutil /p, you may expect data loss...

What kind of information you loss:

while scanning eseutil /p to database. if suspect any corruption. this command will delete the page so you may expect data loss...

i would prefer to run in critical situation, other wise you wont run this command.

Using /p means you'll lose all of the information stored in the logs that haven't hit the database and there is no way to tell how much information that is.
