@aamirkhan - first, why are you sure it was a Panda hit rather than some other problem? Seems to me that something affecting 14 sites at once is more like a penalty, and Panda is not a Penalty.
Your friend overstated the case a bit, I'd say. It is hard to recover from a Panda demotion, but it does happen. However, once again I repeat that what you describe does not sound like Panda to me.
