Yes! There is a possibility of having HPV after one had gone through Hysterectomy.
It is to be noted that, the common treatment for this virus has not been found yet and it is not possible to get rid of the virus completely. There is no cure for HPV. The aim of treatment is to improve the immune system of the individual. Curing HPV, also called Human Papilloma Virus or Venereal Wart, can only be achieved through strengthening the body's resistant system.

Person suffering from the disease should maintain a healthy lifestyle. To live clean and strengthen immune system are very important. Living with HPV is much easier if you have a healthy body. This prevents the warts from recurring. Herbs such as Hyperisince Mysorense, Echinacea, Phyllanthus emblica are known to boost immunity. Most plants of the Hypericum family have also been studied to have anti-viral effects. Intake of vegetables especially Cruciferous vegetables which includes cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli and citrus fruits should be increased with minimizing intake of sugars, caffine and refined foods.
