Brief Answer:
Detail follows.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I understand your concern.
Weakness after viral fever or Typhoid fever is common. You would recover with time. You can add a multivitamin to your diet for a few days and that too just because diet reduces a lot in fever.
As far as Widal test is concerned it is an antibody test which remains positive for 6-8 weeks or even more after resolution of fever.
You need not repeat it. It would start decreasing in a few days.
It has no significance as far as resolution of fever is concerned.
If you have any further query please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
