I want to thank my wife, Lily, for the love, patience and care given to me during my three months of recuperation, which resulted in a speedy recovery.

I think a comma is needed in the above sentence, but I don't know why.

    It depends on your preference to my view of thinking. The part of the sentence that begins with "which..." seems like non-essential. I mean, if you take that part off, the meaning of your sentence will stay the same. If you decide to take off the comma, then that part's going to be essential. Either way it gives us extra information about your three months of recuperation.
