Answer

Patients with CMV infection commonly ask when they can resume their usual activities. The most common symptom after resolution of the acute phase of CMV infection is fatigue, which may persist up to 18 months after the primary infection but is usually much shorter. Some patients resume their usual activities almost immediately, but the average time to recovery from fatigue is 1-2 months. Patients should resume activity as they can tolerate.
