The first win came in her favoured 100m backstroke event, in which she touched the wall in 59.37 seconds. She followed that up with a winning time of two minutes, 13.37 seconds in the 200m individual medley.
"I don't know if I'm through all my illness," Emily said. "It's not throwing me out and I'll look forward to hopefully a healthy year. And if I go away and get sick, I'll just train through it. It's part of my routine now."
Sat 30 Jul 11: Emily Seebohm has had a disappointing World Championships in Shanghai.
Emily Seebohm competed in just two events in Shanghai
Moments after winning silver in the 100m backstroke, Emily fell to the ground and had to be revived with oxygen. She has pulled out of the rest of the meeting and may now only compete in one event at the World Swimming Championships in Shanghai in July.
She was hospitalised this week after learning she had contracted the H1N1 (swine flu) strain.
"The most annoying part about it was being in isolation - by myself - it was so boring not having anyone to talk to and even the nurses had to wear a mask and coat and gloves to come and see me," she said.
She broke her own Games record to win the 100m backstroke in 59.79, overhauling England's world champion and world record holder Gemma Spofforth.
"It is a big weight off my shoulders," Emily said. "I was never going to win eight gold medals. I knew that myself. I didn't expect it to be such a big deal in the media ... I did something for myself, I won a gold for me."
Earlier, she won silver in the 100m freestyle with a time of 54.30, finishing behind compatriot Alicia Coutts who won in 54.09.
Sun 22 Aug 10: Emily rounded off an outstanding week at the Pan Pacific Championships by adding a gold in the 200m individual medley to silvers in the 100m freestyle, 4x100m freestyle relay and 4x100m medley relay.
