Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Usually it takes 8-10 weeks to completely recover.
However,it differs in different individuals due to comorbid illnesses and buildup.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
Khan

Hi Mr khan, thanks for the reply.
