Hi there,

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Mono related symptoms can last well over 5 weeks.

Fatigue is a common symptoms that may persist.

Enlarged spleen is common with mono.

Mono infection can be confirmed by the EBV serology antibody panel.

Also complete blood count with differential should be checked.
