Maybe: I presume the 7% of the hida scan is for a cck induced study. If so, another indicator of symptomatic biliary dyskinesia is whether or not the cck administration reproduced the symtoms. Symptoms sound like the gallbladder is the culprit, and you will have to decide how bad it is, and if you want to take a chance of removing it. Reasonable to take it out. See a general surgeon for a consult.

Assuming 7% means: A gallbladder ejection fraction, then the hida scan is abnormal and the gallbladder is dysfunctional. Please see your doctor. I would expect a consultation with a surgeon to explore the benefits of removal of the gallbladder.

See specialist: 7% ejection fraction quite low and if associated with appropriate symptoms indicate gall bladder disease. Vomiting can be associated. However greenish vomit contains bile. Duodenogastric reflux is reflux of bile from duodenum into stomach representing duodenal dysmotility which can be associated with sphincter of oddi dyskinesia. May be combination of biliary and gastric issues.Consult G.I. Doctor.
