Welcome to HCM
You have fever which is diagnosed as Enteric fever(Typhoid) .
As you are already taking medical treatment and do not have any fever now, you are on road of recovery it may take a week or so and jaundice may be part of your typhoid.
As bilirubin and liver enzymes are only mildly elevated.
Take regular medicines as advised by your doctor.
Take normal balanced diet and vitamin supplementation given by doctor.
Widal test positive ? we need to have rising titres in two tests to have significance.
Take care.
Good Luck.
