How many days after flu onset would bacterial pneumonia begin?

How many days after flu onset would bacterial pneumonia begin?

At risk: Once the inner lining of the lung is infected, it is prone to a secondary infection. It may take weeks to recover from influenza, and a secondary pneumonia can occur at any time during that period. There is evidence that the risk for a pneumococcal pneumonia occurs even one week after influenza infection.

Swine flu reoccurrence? Can someone get swine flu twice?

Swine flu reoccurrence? Can someone get swine flu twice?

Short answer - yes: Swine flu is really only one form of several strains of influenza. Sometimes the doctor or nurse practitioner calls your illness "flu-like"(like swine flu) and treats you for it empirically, even without specifically testing for flu (nose swab test).
