Hello! Thanks for your qerry . I persume you had Widal test done. What was the titre when you started the treatment? When was the test done ie on which day of your fever eg 4th day 7th day etc., was the test repeated after one week? Rising titre is significant. Another thing have you got your urine examination and blood sugar tested yet?

Hello and thanks for posting your query on HCM
Your titres are negative so the infectious process is over.
Continue with you five days of ciptofloxacin.
Typhoid causes lot of weakness and it persists long after the tests are negative.
Take proper rest, eat healthy food and dont exert yourself.

Take care
