I've been diagnosed with mono about two and a half months ago. At first I hade persistent low grade fevers, then came jaundice, dark urine, pale stools, constant nausea and throwing... finally a rash that covered most of my body. At the time, my bilirubin levels reached about 8 and ALT was 699. Since then my liver has fully recovered. However, two months after being diagnosed I noticed that there was blood in my stools for about three days. My pediatrician told me to get an ultra sound and everything was clear. Then, it was green for about one week and from the last two weeks until now the colour and density are normal but a lot of yelowish mucus comes out in my stools (very occasionally the stools are still greenish). I was wondering if this could have anything to do with mono.... Also in my last blood exam everything was normal except for the positive monospot, Epstein Barr IgG (141UA/ml) and IgM (179UA/ml). Should the values be this high 3months after? Am I developing chronic mono?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
These values will be persistently high. Greenish color stool has no association with infectious mononucleosis. Just have stool routine examination to resolve the issue.
I hope it helps.
Take care
