Mono: Could go on for 6 weeks or more. Depends on how severe it was. Get plenty of rest and hydrate

I agree. It could go on for actually more than that to some degree. Sometimes several months of varying degrees of fatigue as it recovers back to normal. And I assume you meant polymyalgia rheumatica.
