dental bone graft and genital herpes


Recommended Posts

I am wondering what you guys think about this...

I am scheduled for a consultation with my dentist because I need to have a dental bone graft surgery soon.

I've been reading up on the procedure , and learned that some doctors take bone from the hip area and transplant it into the jaw area.

I'm not positive if this is the way that my Dr will perform the surgery on me, but, if so, I'm worried that it could spread my genital herpes into my facial area.

I would really rather not tell the Dentist that I have ghsv2. I asked Terri Warren about this, and she said she doesn't believe it would spread, but she admitted that she had never been asked that question before. Not saying I don't trust her opinion but...I still don't think I would be willing to transplant bone from my hip to my face.

Any thoughts about this?

That's what I'm hoping they will do!

I just got scared when I started reading about the possibility of taking it from my hip.I guess different cases call for different procedures.

But yes...I will definitely have to ask more about it cause I've been pretty worried about this whole thing.

I think the stress of it is what caused me to have another outbreak. Thanks so much for replying Sanguine!

Yeah, I know I replied to your other message. IF you are going through with this and you do decide to try the St.John's Wort, just do SJW for 3 days but make sure you're not taking SJW for at least a weak prior to the surgery.

SJW has a half life of 22 hours so it should be well out of the system by then. But SJW will def help with your outbreak and any underlying terrain/structure that may be promoting that.

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
