Genital HSV-1 and Oral Sex

I was recently diagnosed with genital herpes and only found out today it is type 1 genital. All week before i got my results i was convinced it was type 2 and all my research revolved around that. Now i'm just a little shocked its not.
But from what I can gather , type 1 seems like the 'better' herpes to have on your genitals as the chance of transmission is lower.

What i'm trying to figure out now is that..

- Can i get cold sores now as well?

- Am i able to receive oral sex? or is the risk of transmission way too high as type 1 virus generally 'like' the mouth area.

Im trying to organise an appoitment with a gyno as well, but till then , i only have the internet!
