Tonsillectomy scheduled, might be pregnant. Safe to undergo surgery?

I am having a tonsillectomy tomorrow but I m worried I might be pregnant, it s too early for a pregnancy test so I know taking one is useless because it ll come out negative, and I can t tell my mom because I m scared too but I just wanted to know if I could go through the surgery without harming my baby if I am pregnant.

If you are really worried about pregnancy and risks to your baby, it is advisable to speak to your doctor and explain. As a doctor, we have to respect patient's confidentiality.

It is important to know before surgery and anaesthesia whether there is chance of you being pregnant, as some of the medicines/anaesthetic agents can have effects on your baby.

I wish you are able to discuss with doctor/any other family person who can support you in this.
