I am NED for over 2 years. I was HPV positive P-16 Stage IV throat cancer. I had a tonsillectomy, 35 radiation treatments, chemo, and a modified radical neck dissection. Then the wife filed for divorce. Now, I'm now out on my own entering into my first sexual relationship, post-divorce. The Drs told me I could've been exposed to HPV years ago. They never addressed whether or not I was still HPV contagious? I know that the virus is ever-present but, does that mean I could infect any/every subsequent partner? I can't seem to find an answer anywhere? Obviously, the last thing I would ever do is intenionally expose someone to cancer. I feel like a walking "Suicide Bomber." I will eat a bullet before I sentence someone to cancer. Does anyone know?
