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

Upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, pancreas and liver normal, no gallbladder but really bad and constant pain in epigastric zone..ideas?

REFERRED PAIN: If no pathology defined in region of mid epigastrium, then one has to suspect referred pain to this region. When any inflammatory process in the rt lower quad starts in the mucosal region of the bowel, pain is referred to the epigastric region. Only when extension of the inflammation reaches serosa does pain localize to the rt. lower quad. Look for inflammatory process near cecum. ...Read more

Had ultrasound that indicated gall stone foci (6mm).  Liver and gall bladder normal. no pain.  Coded as cholestasis.  Why not say minor gall stones?

Gallbladder disease symptoms, inflamed, free fluid around gallbladder but no gallstones what could this problem?

Gallbladder.: If your gallbladder appears inflamed on ultrasound and has free fluid around it, associated with symptoms which sound like gallbladder symptoms, I would say the most likely cause of your symptoms is your gallbladder. It is certainly possible to have cholecystitis without gallstones. You should be evaluated by your doctor or a surgeon ASAP. Good luck. ...Read more

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
