Just been to my dr yesterday after being poorly for the last month following my mc operation and he has diagnosed glandular fever.
has anyone had it before? Or have any advice on getting over it etc

I had it when I was about 10 years old... I remember I missed nearly a whole year at school and was gutted because they'd done the Ancient Egyptians and Under the Sea topics without me! I seem to recall I just spent a lot of time sleeping in bed or the sofa. I haven't had recurring bouts as an adult, though any minor illness tends to make me very weak unless I get myself plenty of early nights. I think that's the same as most people though. I was pumped full of vegetables and vitamins by my mum as often as possible when I was little but not sure if that actually helped at all.
So actually, no, not any proper advice at all there, sorry! Get as much rest as possible, and don't force yourself to do anything you don't feel 100% ready for. Are you signed off work?

HaHa, thanks for the reply. I haven't been signed off only because I chose not to due to the fact I'm a foundation/year 1 teacher and got a nativity play to do next week to be performed next year and its really important to the parents and children so really want to try and get through if I can. Saying that I've cancelled everything else and only doing the minimal to get through! I just can't believe how awful I feel!x

I think if you want to get over this you need to rest - and properly rest up as in do nothing - otherwise it can take months to get over it. Not had it myself so apologies if this is hearsay. Can you go off sick after the nativity next week? Then you have the Christmas holidays to get better

I had it when I was younger about 13 I think. Laid me out for about six months. I'd do lessons and then sleep at breaks and lunch purely to get through the day! You have my sympathies. Xx

Goodness I had this when I was 13. It led onto ME for a couple of years but I think that's an extreme case. It knocks you off your feet so lots of rest, multi vits and echinacea shuld help x

I had it when I was about 14 and I was off school for a week or so initially but it took 3 months to recover, ended up being sent home with my emergency contact as I wasn't well enough to be back. I still remember the pain in my throat as well like it was yesterday but my whole system really took a kicking. Probably the worse illness other than a kidney infection. Please take it easy otherwise you will make yourself worse xx
