About 9 years ago, when I was 20, I got
mononucleosis. As a result of the mono,
I developed hepatitis. I remember the
jaundice, feeling tired and week, being in
bed for several weeks, and especially
my hands and feet itching. And after I was
well, I was told not to consume alcohol for
several months. What I don't remember
is whether or not there were any long-
term implications. Is hepatitis that
develops from mono any specific type?
A or B, etc? Or is it simply non-viral
hepatitis? Can I ever give blood? Can I
pass it on to my wife? My doctors at the
time didn't tell me about any long term
complications, but my wife and I are kind
of curious. I have been unable to find
anything online that answers my specific
questions. Please fill me in if you can.
