HIDA scan?: This test can help determine whether you have another related condition, e. g. acalculus cholecystitis, biliary dyskinesia, etc. I don't imagine fancy medical terms are helpful to you, but you should consider returning to your doctor to discuss this or other testing.

Unless you have : Symptoms suggesting gallbladder disease i would do nothing. The gallbladder can contract by just drinking some water so a contracted one alone is of doubtful significance. Ultrasound can be used to look for gallstones should there be some need for further evaluation and hepatobiliary scans can look for abnormal gallbladder filling and emptying in patients with suspected gallbladder dysfunction. ...Read more

Basically YES.: there is both a compelling need to remove the gallbladder possibly and no evidence of a problem. Mostly, it is because the fine gallstones are running through a NON_WORKING gallbladder and irritating it and the liver. HIDA shows.... Without an exam, I can only give general information. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, this is how to proceed. ...Read more

Difficult to know: There is not much in the literature regarding gallbladder function after prolongue NPO, but there is a test that can evaluate the function of the gallbladder in percentage called HIDA scan with CCK. But you will need an ultrasound before to make sure you don't have gallstones. Any value above 35% is normal function. ...Read more

Gallbladder is contracted and contain multiple echogenic calculi.The common bile duct is 4mm and no filling defect is seen.Please advice me.

Do You Have Pain?: The presence of gallstones in the absence of symptoms does not warrant gallbladder surgery. In fact, most people with "silent" gallstones will never develop symptoms, as high as 75% of the time. I advise my patients to be familiar with the symptoms of gallbladder disease and return if these develop. While surgery is safe and easy, it is not risk-free. ...Read more
