Seeking OB/GYN opinion... - page 2

Ok....for all you fantastic OB nurses out there, I have a what seems to me to be a mind-boggling question. I went to the docs earlier this morning feeling generally unwell...nauseous, vomiting,... Read More

    2nd opinion post-haste. I believe there ARE conditions whereby Hcg can be detected in NON pregnant people and these usually involved hormonal imbalances. I am not sure. Molar pregnancy still requires the usual fertilization to occur. So I would not have guessed that. I sure don't know what is up with you. I hope you are ok. I wish you the best. Please let us know what happens, ok?

    I'm just a student..but I do know that a pregnancy test will show up positive due to hormones that are present in the body at the time of pregnancy. So therefore I would think of it would be a hormone imbalance.

    Just a question here..Student only type question...could you have maybe gotten pregnant when you last had sex and had a miscarriage? I would hope and think that you should have a reaction way sooner then this but yeah you never know. Good Luck and I would say as everyone else has said get a second opionion.

    I definitely am not preggers. Conclusively proved by ultrasound that there is absolutely nada in there, not even nasty pathological processes. Huge sigh of relief....I don't think I'm a good enough role model to be the next Virgin Mary.

    My original blood samples were found in the fridge and had never been sent to the lab. They had my name on them but someone in their infinite wisdom decided that they were just spare tubes since the other results had already come back and didn't even bother sending them in for testing.

    The ultrasound DID reveal a few miniscule-looking gallstones in the common bile duct which appear to have moved on their merry little way on the repeat scan I had done on Thursday. Gall stones never even occurred to me since the pain wasn't where I expected it would be.

    I'm feeling heaps better...but I am currently shopping for a new GP practice because my confidence in this mob has been completely shattered.

    Pregnant with some bouncing baby gallstones! Congratulations! Are you going to send out announcements? You could get some interesting baby shower gifts.

    Thank goodness it wasn't more serious, and what a turkey that doc was (do you feel stupid now, doc?)

    Good thinking finding a new practice. Sounds like more than the flip MD was wrong with that group. Glad you're feeling better.

    Thanks for the update, orthonutter (I didn't post originally because I have NO knowledge of OB stuff, but I was following this anxiously to hear about the outcome.) Congrats on your gallstones .

    Been there, done that, got the t-shirt with the gallstones situation. Ended up going to 4 regular docs with reviews by residents and interns in a teaching hospital. Only thing was I was steady asking them what about gall bladder disease and they told me over and over that there were no gall stones, it was all in my head. I was so angry and bitter. Ended up having surgery having ovary removed for cysts on it, then having surgery then having gall bladder surgery six months later. Only good thing that came out of it was meeting my husband during that time. I was really bitter about my problems because I had to work with the doctors that gave wrong dx.

    I only wish that my mum didn't live so far away....I was dying to see what her face looked like when I told her the doctor told me I was pregnant with gallstones! :chuckle

    There was complete silence on the phone before she asked how I managed to get gallstones in my uterus. I couldn't help myself....I was howling with laughter. :roll

    But thankyou for the congrats on the birth of my gall twins. I shall name them Max and Milly.

    Meanwhile, I shall continue my quest for a doctor who actually knows what they're talking about. It's a tough ask, but somebody's got to do it.
