Brief Answer:
it takes few weeks to start recovery

Detailed Answer:
Hi, Balakrishnaravipatiji,
Thanks for posting query.
There is no exact weeks of prediction for starting recovery.
Few weeks after starting treatment show signs of recovery.
Improvement in signs and symptoms of the disease shows starting of recovery of the disease.
Improving appetite, absence of low fever, fatigue and gaining weight are few signs of having recovery.
Negative sputum for tubercular bacilli is sure sign of improvement.
Strictly observation on treatment, symptoms and condition of the patient are very essential.
I hope, I answered your query.
If you have further query or clarification, please ask.
Wish your daughter's recovery fast.
