Not necessary...: Assuming there are no other issues of concern with your gallbladder, a normal hida scan and left-sided pain suggest you need to consider a different source of symptoms. Few surgeons would consider cholecystectomy given your presentation and database. If your liver tests are however abnormal further liver/biliary testing is needed. See your doctor who can direct you to the next appropriate test.

Normal hida scan: A normal gallbladder ejection fraction is more than 50%. It is normal in your case. Unless you have a situs invertus ( in this case the liver on the left side instead of the right side) your symptom is probably not related to hepatobiliary disease, as demonstrated by your normal hida scan. It might be related to stomach, spleen or other thoracic problems.
