    Mono and roller coasters: Sit out or can I go?

    Okay well I'm going today so I doubt I'll get an answer in time. This may be an obvious answer but I figure I'll ask anyway.

    Well, I have mono and have had the symptoms for almost two weeks. Today is my sister's birthday so we're taking a trip to Orlando to go to Disney. My question is should I stay away from the roller coasters? I know I'm gonna stay away from Mission Space (which I love but with the outrageous g-force I think my equally outrageously swollen lymph nodes will explode). But I know with mono comes a swollen spleen (though the doctor said he didn't feel it when I last went to see him and it hasn't been hurting me) so I'm sure most will agree to stay away from those kinds of rides but... like I said, I want to know for sure.

    Also, how large can your lymph nodes get? I have several swollen ones but the one below my jaw on the right side is crazy swollen. Like, visibly so. And yes, quite painful. Just curious because wow, it's huge.
