Is there any coming back from damping-off

Some of my seedlings seem to have damping-off but they seem to be still growing or grew to a certain extent. They look surpsingly healthy. Is there any coming back from damping-off ? is it just a matter of time before they die? Thanks

    I am not sure that it is damping off. It looks to me as if they are just etoilated due to lack of light, so they have just flopped.

    I agree, but they aren’t helped by the slug that is obviously visiting them.

    I understand that for the one on the left that is leaning but look at the stems in the top pic on the right?

    They were inside but now outside so should be getting more light.I don't have any fresh compost to repot but am getting some on Weds so will definitely sort them out. I do try to go out at night and pick off slugs but the trails still keep appearing :(

    Thanks all.

    Seedlings that succumb to damping off have a very noticeable pinch in their stems just above ground level. See here
