Genital herpes outbreak and surgery
Joeychris posted:
My mom has genital herpes and this week has had her first outbreak in many years. She is scheduled to have a mastectomy this Friday. Is this going to be a problem?
georgiagail responded:
It is unlikely (unless the outbreak if very severe) but she can, of course, always check with her physicians office if she remains concerned.

The surgery of course will not involve the area of the outbreak.
