In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.

There are no long-term effects. You get sick, then you get better.
