Needs soft diet
Thanks for your query,
I am sorry to know about your friend's condition.
Antibiotics will take care of the infection and the resulting ulcers. We also need to find a cause of the symptoms. Usually typhoid happens from contaminated, uncooked food and unclean water, juices, etc. It may also happen if the person cooking your friend's food is a carrier of typhoid.
Taking properly cooked food and cleaner drinking water from RO system will help.
I usually advise the following changes in diet in typhoid fever. During and at least one month after typhoid, the patient needs to take liquid diet. The diet has to be easily digestible and devoid of complex non-digestible proteins. Thus the diet can include items like khichdi, soft roti mashed in curry of sabzi, nicely mashed rice, mashed fruit, milk, etc I also advise against non-vegetarian food during this period. The reason is that non-vegetarian food may have been handled by a vendor that may be a carrier of typhoid. It may also have been washed in water contaminated with the typhoid germs. Especially fish needs to be avoided. Raw food like salad and other raw vegetables should be avoided as the intestines are sore. Nutritious food and fruit should be taken. She should thoroughly wash her hands before and after taking food. She should not prepare her own food during this period to avoid contamination from her own germs.
Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Need details of reports
Kindly give details of reports and the treatment she is on so that I am better able to help. Painkiller can be taken if pain is bad.
Swelling and ulcers due to typhoid subside with antibiotics within a few days of antibiotics. Complete recovery usually takes 1 month or more. Weakness is the main symptom and gets better with time.
