Possibly: If your pain is related to food, especially fun, greasy food, it may well be your gallbladder. Other symptoms are bloating, nausea, and increased flatulence. A sonogram would spot stones, small stones (sludge, ) or gallbladder wall thickening. If sono normal, and gallbladder still suspected, a hida scan with cck injection would be in order to evaluate function. Good luck.
