Dear , This is Dr. S. Tomar from healthcaremagic.com's medical team and I ll be your medical advisor for this question. First of all thank you for sharing your concern with us and showing trust on us.
Typhoid fever is a bacterial infection which affects mainly our intestines . I would like to inform you that most of the cases fully recover from it after proper treatment . It'S dangerous if not treated , as you are in hospital and have started treatment so it ll be cured soon . Treatment mainly depends on antibiotic therapy which should be continued for 12 days after the last day of fever . As this infection affects intestines so avoid wheat and other foods which are high in fiber contents because such foods can make the healing slow . Rice , milk, yoghurt , coconut water , glucose , honey , soft foods are suitable food in this infection , just avoid wheat, meat products , spicy , fatty foods for a month for better and faster recovery . Seeds of fruits and vegetables should be avoided . In most of the hospitals dietitian provides a diet chart specifically for typhoid fever patients , ask about if there is such service available , if not then just remember the points which I have mentioned earlier and focus on small portion of soft foods and more frequently . In last I would like to reassure you that don't be worried as the right treatment has started and you will see a faster recovery in few days .

This is my initial response and discussion is open untill you have any query or need further clarification.
I wish your husband good health .
Thank you for your question and feel free to contact further for any question .
sincerely,
Dr. Shardendu Tomar
