Multiple reasons: Hida scans help in several ways. They can show whether the gallbladder duct is obstructed or whether the liver duct is obstructed. They are also commonly used to evaluate the function of the gallbladder by estimating the ejection fraction. I would say that the hida is most commonly performed nowadays to assess the function of the gallbladder. This test almost always follows an ultrasound.

Unknown: Nausea and appetite go together. If she is nauseated, then she will likely have a poor appetite. For the gagging, this is somewhat more difficult. Does it occur when eating? Does it happen with both solids and liquids? Does she regurgitate any food? Is it partially digested or look untouched? These are best answered in front of your doctor. They can order the appropriate test or referral.

Depends: While many people rely on any value over 30% as being normal, we also see a few people that have severe symptoms related to gallbladder contraction. Did this test cause your typical symptoms when you were administered the hormone (cck)? If so, this may also indicate a gallbladder problem. While this is less common, a gallbladder surgery may be helpful. Talk to your surgeon about this.
