Excersizing while sick w/Mono


I was diagnosed with Mono before Christmas, on Jan. 3rd I went for a check up, and I asked the doctor if I could start excersizing, and she said I could start stretching and walking but shouldn't run, basically anything that would move my upper body up and down too much, because it would bother the spleen.

So I'm *Dying* of boredom and really want do something more than just walking. So my question is, is there anything a little more fun than walking that wouldn't mess with my guts too much? Something cardio. Like Biking or skating, would that be okay? There's also a Swing dance class that's starting next week that I really want to take, do you know if that would be okay?

Thanks for any advice/tips/ideas.

:Edit: The Dr. said I should wait about a month (from Jan.3) before I went running.

Re: Excersizing while sick w/Mono

Id avoid it. Anything cardio as long as you have Mono. Stick with the doc's advice here. Nothing heavier than walking. Swing dancing is much closer to cardio... just take it easy, even if it's boring. =\
