How long does it take to recover from botulism?

Depends...

Botulism
The severity and time to recover from this toxin- induced neurological disease varies on the amount of toxin ingested and the time of toxin. Serotype A is generally more severe than the other usual types, B and E. It can be days to months. Also the rapid use of antitoxin can assist in lowering the time to recovery.

See below

Botulism
The answer for your question can be incredibly complex as your combined illnesses were very serious and complex. There is no way to predict how long your recovery may take as this depends on age, prior health status, coexisting med conditions and ability to heal. My rec is to have frequent follow ups with you physician according to their recs as they know your history. Best wishes recovering!

How can you get botulism?

Food & wounds

Botulism
Botulism is caused by a toxin made by the C. botulinum bacteria. In adults, botulism is usually caused by eating contaminated food (improperly prepared canned or fermented foods) or when a wound gets contaminated by the bacteria. Infant botulism can happen in the first year of life--risk factors include eating honey and exposure to contaminated soil.

Dr. Stefania Lima answered:

How can a baby get botulism?

No honey for infants

Baby
Most cases of botulism happen in infancy, and the spores of the Clostridium bacteria produce a toxin that can be found in canned foods and honey, so that's why we don't recommend giving honey to babies less than a year old.

Dr. Lynne Weixel answered:

Can I get botulism from eating raw garlic clove?

Seems it's the oil

Botulism
The problem - rare but deadly serious - seems to be in oil infusions - not with the simple raw clove. It is credited with reducing risk of lung cancer. No reports of botulism are readily available - don't worry.
