This mono disease???

Sorry guys...I know that there is theads about roger and mono, bash me if ya want but I need to know.

I understand what kind of disease it is and know that it`s quite serious thanks to you guys but there is one think that I don`t understand.
Can this mono destroy let`s say Federers physical health forever or is it something that vanishes after a period. I mean even if Federer has reovered from it can it have an affection on him anyway, or will he be fine afterward`s. Maybe sounds crazy but I don`t know so much about it.

'Forever' is quite a long time.
For your info, read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infectious_mononucleosis.

Generally spoken, it's hard to tell how long one may suffer from mono infection, and also, how much. It's a very versatile virus, and may pop up again even if you think you've recovered from it. No bueno, that's for sure.

Re: This mono disease???

I had mono years ago and the first week I thought I was gonna die!

My throat swelled up and my nose was stuffed up so it was very hard for me to breathe

No meds helped, it just had to run it's course.

After all of these years, my neck lymph nodes are still somewhat swollen.

It goes away after a while.

Not entirely. Once infected, you'll always be a carrier of the Epstein-Barr virus, meaning that while you might not feel any of the effects anymore, it might come back if you are really unlucky...

No, as long as it's in its 'sleeping' mode, it won't be affecting one. Problem is that it might reappear in full force as soon as one is fatigued, having less natural resistance and the like.
So it's pretty hard to tell when it's in fact 'over'. It may last two months, it may last six months, it may last a couple of years without any signs of it being active - and then suddenly it can pop out of the basket again.
Not unlike the herpes virus which, as far as I know, is related to EBV.

Nasty buggers those viruses are.

Re: This mono disease???

To think we demand world class tennis from a guy stricken with mono. Talk about ridiculous.

Re: This mono disease???

BS.

Infectious mononucleosis is the a *possible* initial clinical phase of EBV infection. After the immune system fights the virus, the virus becomes latent in the B lymphocytes. It cannot "come back" whenever. It can "come back" if the patient is immunosupressed, e.g. AIDS, chemotherapy, radiation, etc. There is also a possibility that it may be a trigger in the flares of certain autoimmune diseases, e.g. lupus. But I've never heard of it "coming back" randomly in a person with a healthy immune system.

Just to let you guys all know, about 90-95% of the human population has this virus dormant in their bodies! Most got it as a "flu"/"cold" when they were children and it never took the form of mono. Those who get it in adolesence and adulthood tend to present with mono.

Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)

You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from tennisplanet.me, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)

Main problem of that Nasty Bugger is that you never really know for sure 1) when it's 'gone' (i.e., not affecting your physical and mental state anymore), and 2) when it returns (if you are one of the unlucky people to whom that happens...).

I can only hope that Roger, in his (to me) obvious attempt to defend his #1 position wherever he can, doesn't make a mistake in dealing with this infection - playing tournaments while being ill may well mean that it takes a lot longer to fully recover.

Not joking here, but the mono shouldn't "return" unless Roger has cancer/chemotherapy, was blasted with radiation, is taking immunosupressive steroids such as prednisone, has some sort of autoimmune disease that's wrecking his immune system, AIDS, etc. These are awful things, but they're rare and really only immunosupression can lead to EBV "coming out" once it has gone latent.

I hope Roger pulls out of Miami to protect his health.

I'm afraid nobody knows for sure, not even Roger himself and/or his doctors/entourage. It can be pretty difficult to diagnose this disease in the first place, as white blood cells-count isn't always immediately telling at the first tests being done. Remember Roger first thought it was food poisoning and that he had several tests done over time in the hospital?
So asking whether it will continue affecting him... a Big Question Mark.

For how long it takes to fully recover - ask Henin, ask Ancic... it can take quite a while that's for sure.
