Abd pain: Gb is possible but with gb us being normal and hida being normal - don't agree to gb removal. It can make things worse! irritable bowel syndrome is high on the list. Talk to your doc about that. You will need to modify your diet. Not sure what you're eating, but chances are dietary modifications can help, at least somewhat.

I agree that your gallbladder is not likely the issue and surgery to remove the gallbladder could make you worse. See a Gastroenterology specialist if you have not already.

Irritable bowel: Doesn't sound like the gallbladder. One important piece of info would be whether or not the cck administration reproduced your symptoms. If it did, may still be the gallbladder. Otherwise think about irritable bowel. Hope this helps!

Probably not: The gall bladder. The likelihood of significant gallbladder disease with a normal hida scan is small, unless you have gallstones. Probably something else GI related though.

Not likely: Could be but it is not likely. See your doctor again.
