Mono: Mono takes a long time to recover from but I do not think you would still have any abdominal swelling. If this persists I would let your dr have a look

Consult your doctor.: Most of the time, mononucleosis is caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. People who get it usually get better and become carriers for life. In rare cases some people develop chronic active EBV infection. Your doctor can test for this and other possible causes of your symptoms, such as hepatitis or toxoplasmosis, helping to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and treatment. Best wishes.
