In brief: Depends...

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.
