I don't blame you or your husband for being worried about
surgery while you aren't feeling well. I'm not sure that it would affect your surgery at all, but I'm guessing it might make your recover tougher and longer. You'd have to talk to one of the docs to find out what they mean by "high" and to find out if it means your EBV is active. I don't know much about
it except that I think once you have it, you always rest positive for it (I think).
I had a really bad case of mono a long time ago and I feel like I was never really the same after it. For some reason I think some people can make a full recovery and others of us never really do.
I wish I could give you some more definite answers. Let me know if you have other questions. The cfs forum is pretty slow most of the time, but I usually check it at least once a day.
Take care and I hope you get some answers from your doctor.
