Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that the flu like symptoms and the injury due to the punch the bag are two different conditions in my opinion your father should be treated with, Tab Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen three times in day take care and have a nice day.
