My dad has 22.45 WBC with 71.1% NEU and 18% LYM. No chest nodules, joint/bone pain or above mild fatigue - can lift stuff and doesn't sleep to long or too short. He's a smoker. No sight problems or body ache. He only had the flu the day he gave the sample
Respiratory illness: I'm so sorry your father isn't feeling well. Studies show smokers are at high risk for community acquired pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer. The influenza virus predisposes to superinfection with bacterial pneumonia and based on pulmonary exam I would treat your father for a mixed infection with oseltamivir and either azithromycin or moxifloxacin/ dep on risk factorsSee 1 more doctor answer

Flu: You have to differentiate between 2 things that may happen after flu: one is bacterial infection (staph pneumonia) which usually presents with high grade fever, chills, cough w\o chest pain.

Probable influenza: Yes, this certainly could be the 'flu' because u may have 'muted' your fever with over the counter 'cold' medicines that contain tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin/NSAIDs like motrin.
