    No Lowry and no Martin ='s less driving the lane and flopping trying to get a call instead of trying to take a decent shot

    I believe he said "another doctor", not a "real" doctor. What do you have against radiologists btw? You do know that it's been one of the harder residencies to get into for the past 15 years right?

    I had a very similar Bacterial Infection like Lowry's when I was in college and was living in the dorms and it was during basketball season as well.

    The cause is basically like any cold... basteria. However, 70% of your body's immune system is in your stomach and intestine area. A bacterial infection will attach a host in your gut and is nearly impossible for your body's immune system to get rid of on its own because the nature of it attacking your immune system so heavily. Thats why you need the antibiotics.

    You basically get a cold similar to the flu. Then if you dont take care of yourself properly by getting enough rest, or you are still putting your body through strenuous activity(like playing in the NBA) that bacteria could linger around long enough to attack your gut and become infected.

    In my case, i was playing my butt off on my basketball team, working out, partying when i could, not eating right, studying, and barely sleeping at night. I had a nasty cold that got slightly better, but never went away for 2 months until when I had a 102 fever for a week straight, finally sucked it up and went to the doctor. Case was a bacterial infection.

    Colds are caused by a virus, not a "basteria". They may have similiar symptoms, but they are totally different. Probably the most improtant difference it that antibiotics can cure a bacterial infection, but will do absolutely nothing for a cold or flu. There are some antiviral drugs, but in most case you have to wait for a virus to run it's course.

    It means a harmful bacteria, which is a one celled microscopic organism, entered Kyle's system, possibly through food, drink, something he touched, etc. Once inside, it would multiply and attack parts of his body. If it was in his stomach, maybe it would affect the stomach and other organs like the liver, for example.

    I know, I was comparing it to a bad cold or flu because the symptoms and affects are basically the same, and people would understand how he was feeling. It feels like you have the flu that doesnt go away on its own. Basically... your just sick and feel like S&%$.
