I have a quick questions plz. If what i experienced was EPV infection, (mono) for the first time , is it possible to have the glands in my neck swollen even after all the other symptoms go away? is it possible to have them swollen for 2 months? Thanks.

Yes, it is possible. I had mono 20 years ago and to this day the glands in my neck swell when my fatigue is severe. Sometimes I have heard that the glands just stay swollen for some people.

How have you been feeling lately?

I have no sympomts now hippimom except for one large swollen node under my left ear and 3 more nodes on my jaw line (not so swollen) but i can feel them. Occasionaly i feel fatigued but nothing out of the ordinary, my lymph nodes hurt in my armpit on and off. Does this sound normal if 3 months ago i had mono for the first time?

Depending on how severe your mono was it can take quite a while for the nodes to go down, but I would think it would be a good idea to get things re-checked pretty soon especially if some of the nodes are still painful - make sure you don't have any infection in your body anywhere.
