Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms.

See gastroenterology: Even though your gall badder was removed, it is possible to develop and try to pass more stones. A GI doctor can use a scope to get small stones out. If your fever gets above 101 or you can't keep anything down, go to the er. It is a little too long after the surgery to develop complications but strange things can happen.

Need more work up: None of the things you mention should be related to eye pain in my experience. See an ophthalmologist to explore things that could be related to the eye pain part, but you really need a reason for the swollen spleen, testicular pain and weight loss more than just a ct scan and blood work.

It : It is not uncommon for people to develope allergies toward the end of a course of antibiotics. Your story is fairly typical. Your daughter has had a pretty bad allergic reaction to penicillin and should never get penicillin or Amoxicillin ever again.

I would avoid all penicillin related antibiotics, for at least 10 years. She may be tested then by an allergist to determine if she is still allergic to penicillin. Generally individuals revert their penicillin allergy after 10 years of non exposure.
