She also had a bandage over her eye (which was bleeding after her eva got gauged because her sync rate was high). She was most likely wished back, with all injuries healed. However, remember in Shinji's mind, Rei and Kaoru said that the people who want to be wished back will come back, and the people who don't want to be wished back can stay in Lilith's egg as (no)one.
Shinji merely gave everyone the choice of coming back or not (Seele wanted to force everyone into Lilith's egg). Rei helped him by interrupting the Instrumentality process when her giant neck started to rip off. Asuka being there means that Asuka wanted to come back.
