Thanks for your query.
Glandular fever is a very common condition caused by EB virus.
Most signs and symptoms ease within a few weeks, but it may be two to three months before you feel completely normal. The more rest you get, the sooner you should recover. Returning to your usual schedule too soon can increase the risk of a relapse.
As long as you can manage you can have your grandson and go to work .
Better ask your doctor when it's safe for you to resume your normal level of activity. Your doctor may recommend a gradual exercise program to help you rebuild your strength .
There is no need to get undue worried about test results.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
