Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you?
Doctor :  
please proceed with your health query
User :   I'm afraid I might be pregnant but not sure. I recently got diagnosed with gallstones and am waiting for surgery.
Doctor :  
User :   the medicine they gave me for the heartburn until i can have the surgery stopped working today so im up all night
Doctor :  
User :   was wondering if my symptoms suggest pregnancy or if its all just the gallstones
Doctor :  
did you check your pregnancy test?
User :   i took one on the day i missed my period, but it was negative
Doctor :  
what other symptoms you are having?
Doctor :  
User :   I have nausea which has led to vomitting a couple times, but I think thats the gallstones..
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
nausea can be a symptom of both gallstones and pregnancy
User :   I'm overly tired, I'm not eating very much. I skipped my birth control last month, and I'm 8 days late
Doctor :  
what other symptoms do you have?
Doctor :   ok
User :   and I'm dizzy and lightheaded when i try to walk around more than a minute or so
Doctor :  
i suggest you repeat the pregnancy test again after 10 days of the last test
User :   today would be 8 days
Doctor :  
if it comes negative, go for blood HCG levels or a transvaginal scan
User :   does it sound like pregnancy or just the gallstones
Doctor :  
which will be confirmatory tests for pregnancy
User :   but if im pregnant, they wont do the surgery....right?
Doctor :  
the symptoms that you are having can occur in both, so you need to do investigations to rule out or confirm one of them
