None: Usually, most patients recover from food poisoning in 5-10 days with no long term lasting effects. Your colon has millions of good bacteria that can regenerate fairly quickly.

Staph food poisoning: Long term effects would relate to dehydration and any shock like state that evolved. In that eventuality, the shock can damage kidneys. Intestinal damage is not usual from the staph.
