Hi and wlecome to HCM. Thank you for your quer.
Typhoid recovery depends on how severe it was. It sounds like this was pretty serious infection with blood loss and recovery will be prolonged even up to 2 months. She just need to prevent dehydratation by enough fluid intake,rest and eat easier food. If her pain progress,she should do extensive gastroenterologic work up to evaluate colon mucosa. Wish you good health. Regards
