Had CCK HIDA scan today, diarreah and hour after test was done. Pain is worse since test. Any connection ?
Maybe: The stimulation of your gallbladder at the time of the sacn should be over but it is possible you are still experiencing the effects of the test one hour after and IF YOU "PASSED" a STONE at the time of the exam pain may be worse now!! Soud like you should check in with the person who ordered the scan and convey these symptoms to them Hope this helps!@ Dr Z ...Read more
Patient is injected intravenously with isotope tagged to chemical hida that is extracted preferentially by liver cells mimicking bile. Some of this is stored in gall bladder and some enters small bowel from common bile duct. Cholecystokinin is a natural hormone slowly injected intravenously to stimulate gall bladder contraction.

Cronic yellow acidic stool, occ RUQ pain, slightly elevated ALP. Previous gall US and Cck hida neg. Then BM explosive BROWN then norm brown finally after months of pain. Could a stone have cleared?
Gallstone unlikely: Gallstones don't usually cause changes in stooling. Mild all phos elevations are common and nonspecific. You more likely have a bowel issue. I would shift focus away from gallbladder and talk to your doctor about other possible causes of your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Freq yellow burning stools, ruq pain, 2 severe attacks but gallbladder us normal, cck hida 53%. Stool and blood tests normal. Celiac neg. Possibly gallbladder still? What else
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.

When given cck during hida scan got very sick with some cramps.Results were 30percent function of gb. My gb us was normal.Should I have gb taken out?
Probably: Gallbladder with tc99m hida demonstrates extraction from blood stream of radiopharmaeujtical, then excretion into bowel with some storage in gb. Cck, cholecystokinin, stimulates gb to contract. Normal ejection fraction is usually above 35%.Getting symptoms from injection of cck and low ef of 30% suggests gall bladder needs to be removed. Us of gb can be normal without stones when gb has dyskinesia. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hida scan cck showed sluggish movement, 20 ejection , end of bile duct narrowed. Having mrsd, meanwhile put on creon . Why ?
Bile duct stenosis: Narrowing of bile duct is usually detected by endoscopy (direct visualization) or mrcp (magetic resonance cholangiopancreatography). Mrcp also evaluates pancreas. Ductal narrowing can be caused by dyskinesia / spasticity, inflammation, or external pressure from tumor. Gall bladder ejection fraction of 20% usually refers to gall bladder disease or dyskinesia. Creon helps digestion with enzymes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Excruciating upper right abdominal pain, radiates to back. Worse after meals & exercising. 2 weeks. All GB tests normal (u/s and HIDA w/ cck). Ideas?
Other causes: Other organs in abdomen can cause right upper quadrant pain.

Hepatitis can also cause right upper quadrant pain.See gastroenterologist. ...Read more
