    the best of luck for your recovery

    I wish you the best of luck for your recovery

    Does the sentence above convey the idea that the person whom the sentence is addressed to is in such a bad situation that he may not recover? May it be offensive?
    Would I wish you all the best be better?

    Thank you in advance

    It might be wiser not to introduce "luck" into wishes for recovery.

    With all best wishes for your rapid recovery

    Hoping that you will recover very soon.

    I wish you all the best for a rapid recovery.

    I wrote that sentence in an email. Do you think the person involved may feel offended?

    No. They probably won't think twice about it - but you seemed uncertain, so perhaps it will be better not to use "luck" in similar messages
