Q: What is the difference between She fully recovered. and She completely recovered. ?
A: unless you are going to emphasise it, like:

A mother is shocked when she tells someone her daughter was no longer ill after just one day. She says:
'She completely recovered!'. 'completely' used to show her shock, she's not a single bit ill.

'The patient fully recovered.'
