I had hip replacements two years ago. I haven't been tested for HIV. Would they have discovered I had HIV prior to and post surgery? If so, would they have informed me?
No. HIV testing is a very regulated test. In most states, the law requires doctors to inform patients that they are having an HIV test. By no means should a person assume they have had an HIV test unless a doctor has specifically told them so and showed them the results. Patients should look at test results with their doctor and go over what each result means.
To your health,
