Being checked for cholecystitis. Abdominal pain, nausea. Ct scan clear. Urine suddenly brown. Worry?

Maybe. Notify MD: Liver disorders can cause dark urine. Discolored urine can also be caused by certain foods, medication, and kidney infections. Also if you haven't been hydrating due to nausea, the next urine may come out darker than usual. The bottom line is, your physician should know about this so he/she can run more tests and get a better idea of what might be going on. ...Read more

What about bleeding?: Given your medications and the history, I would worry about bleeding from your gastrointestinal tract. The black stool may go along with this (unless you are taking a bunch of iron supplements). I would make an appointment to see your regular doctor. ...Read more

3 months left side abdo & flank pain and tenderness blood urine cystoscopy & CT scan fine. No diarrhea, but some constipation. Colonoscopy next. Cause?

Possibilities: A ct scan could have missed a kidney stone that passed just before the scan. It could also miss diverticulitis, depending on whether the ct scan was done with both IV and oral contrast. Colonoscopy is definitely the next thing to do. Another consideration is endometriosis, ovarian cyst, ectopic pregnancy, or inflammatory bowel disease. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Upper abdominal pain left/ middle/right and kidneys. Hida scan normal, ultrasound normal for gallbladder. Still in pain and now colon pain fever 101 ?

ABD PAIN & FEVER: It is very important to separate the location of the pain from its cause. Abd pain & fever may arise from many, many different diseases, not just limited to the gallbladder, kidney, or colon. Rx hinges upon finding the cause, which requires a thorough medical history and exam +/- labs +/- ct scan +/- colonoscopy. Please see a primary care doctor or gastroenterologist. ...Read more

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 more

Symptoms: bloating,gas,chest discomfort,headaches,rare white stool. GB ejection 12%. Little rt side pain. Dr recommends gallbladder removal.Should I?

GB surgery: Your GB isn't working properly and you are symptomatic. I agree that you should remove the GB to not only improve/ resolve your symptoms but to prevent it from becoming an emergency procedure from a ruptured GB. If it's not functioning due to inflammation or gallstones you are at higher risk or a rupture. Have you had a GB u/s? This would help determine the urgency of surgery. Good luck ...Read more

Abdominal pain/nausea/vomiting. Ct shows cbd dilated 11-12mm. BC is normal. No jaundice, fever, itching. No gallbladder. Lesion near ampulla - cancer?

Could be...: but could also be a benign lesion. But, most certainly this lesion is blocking the exit of bile through the ampulla, which is backing up and causing your common bile duct to be dilated. This lesion will need to be biopsied, probably with an ERCP done by a surgeon or GI doctor. ...Read more

Hida scan 53%/great deal pain nausea and gall bladder symptoms but tests normal? Gallbladder removal help?

Possibly: The symptoms you have are characteristic of problems with the biliary tree, but the area is more complex that just the gallbladder. However, the tests required to try to figure it out come with a certain amount of risk; often a higher risk profile than removing the gb first and eliminating this as a contributing factor. If the us was also normal, i would recommend an endoscopy before gb removal. ...Read more
