dear user
as with this lab report your mother is suffering from typhoid . diagnosis is correct . medication given to her is correct but duration was incomplete .

in this case its my advice to get hospitalize and shift your mother on parentral antibiotic
ceftriaxone play important role in cure of typhoid . and chances of relapse and comlication is very less with this drug.

you should consult your doctor.
