In brief: Feel full strength
When you feel strong enough, essentially.
If you had anemia associated with your episode of sepsis, you may need to wait several weeks or months before your bone marrow recovers enough. If you didn't, you can donate as soon as your strength is back to normal - as assessed by others.

In brief: No set answer
Certainly you want to feel completely well before donating blood.
I would think a month period of waiting after you are well would be reasonable, but there are no studies to direct us as to the exact time required.
