How To Make A Full Recovery From Typhus?
Hello., I want to tell and ask about my typhus, so on December 8, I was hospitalized. And the doctor said I had typhoid symptoms, and after that I was treated until 2 days, and after being treated, I ate carelessly not keeping my diet, eating spicy and spicy, and a week later it was again on the 22nd December the symptoms of typhus recurred again, and until now I still feel, the beginning I took medicine for worm capsules for 3 days has begun to improve but because the medicine for capsules worms run out of symptoms again, and until I just saw a doctor on January 2, and the doctor said I was affected by typhus , then I was given medicine and began to improve but sometimes the body is still weak and the head like a daze and muscle pain is still a little, so how should I do to be able to recover completely? And how much longer can I recover from typhus? And as long as I get sick my weight goes down to 5 kg during illness is that reasonable? Thank you
Hello Siddiq, thank you for the question.
The right name for typhus is typhoid fever. Typhoid fever is caused by gastrointestinal infections by Salmonella typhi bacteria. Transmission of food, drink, eating utensils, contaminated with bacteria. An infected person can remove bacteria in his stool. The bacteria can then stick to food or water. The bacterial infection causes damage to the gastrointestinal wall. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, weakness, muscle and joint pain, and recurring high fever.
Treatment requires antibiotics and other drugs to treat symptoms, such as heat-lowering drugs. Treatment is incomplete, can cause prolonged fever and digestive pain symptoms that arise. Generally this disease can last several weeks to months. The problem is, even though the symptoms have improved, bacteria can remain in the body for months. As a result, if a person returns to eating carelessly and has a bad lifestyle, typhoid fever can strike again at any time. In addition, these people can infect other people due to bacteria that continue to exist in the stool.
How to overcome it actually you can already know logically, namely:
Improve diet. Choose foods that are high in carbohydrates and soft in consistency. Foods such as soft rice or porridge, white bread, boiled potatoes, bananas, apples, eggs, fish, are good for consumption. Avoid fibrous foods, such as hard vegetables. Avoid gassed foods like broccoli and cabbage. Avoid sour, spicy, oily and preserved foods. Fluid intake must be large. Drink 2 L water per day. Add ORS intake several times a day. You can also drink fresh fruit juice that is not acidic, vegetable broth, meat broth. Stop smoking if you smoke. Avoid caffeine and alcohol. Wash hands before eating and after urinating. Make sure food drinks and equipment are clean. Sleep 7-8 hours a night. Routine control to the doctor and follow the advice to take medication obediently. Thus my explanation, hopefully you soon find healing. Regards.
