Is it possible to get mono more than once in a lifetime. I have heard several conflicting reports, my Dr. told me you could not, but then a co-worker who is recovering from mono, told me that her doctor said you could get mono more than once. Thank you for your time.

Different viruses can cause mono-like illnesses, so yes. And a small minority of patients who get EBV mono, can develop chronic infection with exacerbations of the disease. MH
