hi raman ,
fatigue may take up to 2 weeks to completely dissapear in any prolonged illness especially typhoid fever.. a week of on and off fever would have caused some taxation on the body which body needs to recover and will take some time..
also now a days we are seeing a lot of typhoid cases overlapped with viral illnesses some like dengue and many un diagnosed but self limiting viral illnesses.. so in this case there will be a certain amount of body ache , fatigue, pain in the limbs especially joints which starts to recover over period of 2- 4 weeks..
' so best thing to do now is to take a good protein rich diet( chicken soup, pea soup etc) get adequate amount rest, avoid strenuous activities.. in case if pain in the limbs begin to increase then visit a nearby doctor so that necessary tests can be done..

Check your blood pressure, maintain adequate hydration up to few liters per 24 hrs if you living or working in countries with warm weather , also take multivitamin supplements , fresh fruits juice , but most important is make an appointment with Physician and recheck your blood work and if need start new therapy. Will be ideal if you can make blood and stool analysis with culture to choose right antibiotic.

Take care.
