Ultrasound showed sludge in gallbladder. Hida scan was 78% ejaction with positive cck. RUQ pain for 5 years. Do you think surgery is required?
Stool is kinda black / loose .EDG normal. found sludge on gallbladder. Hida scan normal.. Have diverticulosis and hiatel hernia. Should I be concerned?
Rule out bleeding: Whenever there is a history of black stools it is good to make sure that blood is not causing this. If you just had an EGD it is unlikely that you have a bleeding ulcer, but if it was done a while ago this could be a new development. Pepto bismol can also cause black stools, as can iron supplements. A simple guaiac test can quickly rule out a bleed in your gut, so call your Dr! :) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Inflamed gallbladder. Hida scan shows 29%. No gallstones. Symptoms are not severe, minor back pain, nausea, elevated pancreas levels (301), acid reflux. Any other option besides surgery? If so, what?
My ALT is 69 and they found some sludge in gallbladder but hida was 40%. Why is my ALT slightly elevated is it from my gallbladder? Causes?

I was diagnosed with chronic cholecystitis. Is this the same as functional gallbladder disease? My hida scan revealed poor gallbladder function.
Is it recommended to have gallbladder out if hida scan says your function is 30 percent and gb ultrasound says you don't have gallstones?
If you have symptoms: Biliary dyskinesia can cause typical gallbladder symptoms. If one has RUQ pain or bloating after meals or nausea or fatty food intolerance or any combination, and their gb function is less than 35%, then laparoscopic gb removal would be appropriate. You could delay intervention, if desired, by eating a low fat diet. About 10% of my patients don't have gallstones. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
