Thank you for asking question on health care magic
you have come round from the car crash, but you need hematinics to come out of anemia
if there is no internal injury it will take another 1-2 weeks to become normal
you may give hot water fomentation 2-3 times a day for speedy recovery
ask any further queries if needed
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Take care
