Is it possible to contract genital herpes from having surgery?


Someone says they contracted genital herpes after having surgery for their appendix. They have had other health issues caused by childhood meningitis and they say this is what caused the genital herpes to be "activated" in their body after their surgery.Is this absolutely ridiculous or is it really at all possible?

    They did not contract this during surgery. They may have already had herpes, was not aware that they had it and the stress of the surgery to their body brought on a flare-up. Contracting herpes during surgery is not possible. You have to have skin to skin contact with an infected person.
