Brief Answer:
Are you relying on Widal test?

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
First of all it's very unlikely that you are suffering from Typhoid fever for so long. Just 2 weeks of antibiotics treat it.
If you are repeatedly checking your typhoid with the help of widal test then you may find it positive for long as the test remains positive for months.
I need to know your symptoms for which you are thinking that you still have typhoid.
Revert with the asked details for a better help.
