Hi, Ambica,
Thanks for query.
If you completed the course of medicine for typhoid and there is no temperature, it means you are cured of typhoid.
Nothing to worry about high titer of S. Widal as it remains high for some time.
You should be careful about not having relapse.
Take light diet.
Ok and bye.
