I am absolutely certain my entire metabolism changed when I contracted pneumonia.
I have to deal with it, but no question, things changed.

I've had 7 cases of pneumonia after contracting Valley Fever from my days riding motorcycles in the canyons of southern California. The advent of the pneumonia vaccination halted the annual visitation of pneumonia. I haven't had a recurrence since early Dec 1991.
It's possible that your pneumonia was initiated by a cold from the suspect virus. Mine started with flu that morphed into a secondary bacterial infection. It certainly messes with your lung capacity.

Now that you mention it I had pneumonia, the hospital infection kind, after surgery. I had always been thin, but after that I started gaining weight...never had to worry about it before, but afterward a different story. I had never made the connection until reading this thread. Well, whether or not it's the reason I think I shall adopt it :^)
