Suffering from typhoid. Was prescribed Ceftas. Why mild fever?

Hi, I am suffering from typhoid detected through Typhidot (both IgG and IgM). I was prescribed Ceftas 400 mg, 2 times a day for 10 days. I have completed this 10 days course but still mild fever persists (~99 F) just 10 days ago, which makes me feel very weak and tired. Shall I continue with this medicine for couple of days more? Pls provide you r kind advice... Thanks!

Fever might be due to presence of infection and considered as relapse(if it is within 4 wks).Your infection might not have completely subsided with Ceftas which is commonly used for the treatment of typhoid due to a strain which might be resistant.Discuss with your doctor for further management as early as possible specially when it is associated with fatigue, weakness (which is a sure sign of incomplete recovery).Hope this helps.
