PS - I've never heard of anybody needing an operation due to contracting swine-flu (or pneumonia?? [my g/f had pneumonia]). I'm not sure we've got the full story yet.

i've had pneumonia twice, and it is pretty serious. was hospitalized for a week + both times. they talked about doing surgery with me both times, but it wasn't needed. what happens is that there is so much mucus build-up that they have to remove it surgically or you could drown in it. from my poor understanding anyway....

Oh man, that sounds terrible. My g/f had months of mucus coming up. Her mum would massage/hit her on her back to help the mucus on it's way. Her lung function seems impaired to this day (14 years hence).
