I don't think you have much to worry about. I doubt all the CO2 was leaking out of the disconnect so some was probably getting to the beer. When you got home was the keg pressurized? Did you pour a beer? Two good signs the CO2 even at a reduced pressure was keeping the O2 away.

did you replaced the post on the keg or the quick disconnect (gray)? I've had a couple quick disconnects crack over time and the o-ring not seating right and even vanishing (probably during cleaning).

I had to replace to post. The disconnect wasn't the problem after buying a new one . I spray some sanitizer on the post after putting a little co2 on it. It was bubbled from the leak. Replaced it and it is sealed tight now. I am just afraid it became oxygenated

Was it leaking while the CO2 was connected to the keg or after you removed it?

If it's leaking while the CO2 line is attached, you can lose all of the air in your tank very quickly!

It's not as big of a problem if it leaks only after disconnecting the air. A trick to stopping the post from leaking is to connect the CO2 and crank the pressure to 30 psi. Then if you disconnect the air, the leak should be stopped. The added pressure will usually stop the leak. At that point, you can sometimes back the air off to serving pressure without it leaking again.
