HIV infection from hair transplant?

My husband recently had a hair transplant procedure done in Los Angeles. I did not go with him and did not see the facility in which the procedure was conducted. Everything was "normal" following the procedure; swelling, pain, itching of the donor and recipient sites, etc. However, a little over 2 weeks following the procedure, my husband developed a high fever with no other symptoms. No nausea, no vomiting, nothing else that would indicate it was "the flu".  From readings and my own education we are aware that initial signs of infection can include only an unexplained high fever 2 weeks following infection. Should he be tested for HIV?

No, he doesn't need testing. He had his own hair transplanted. There was never a risk. If he has a concern, see a doctor.
