I went into HIDA scan while in pain. The test seemed to have aggravated my syptoms. The results however were normal. Do I need a gall bladder removal?

Maybe

Open-uri20130317-27140-iqzr5h
The Hida scan is not always abnormal with gall bladder disease. The fact that symptoms were mimicked by the test may mean gall bladder is an issue. Sometimes gb ejection fraction can be normal and there is a problem with the biliary duct at its entrance into the duodenum where is a muscle, called sphincter of Oddi,Sometimes spasm at this area can cause simiilar pain., called dyskinesia.

Have bloating since gallbladder removal January 17 what would be causing it?

Not uncommon

Abdominal_bloating
After gallbladder surgery, some people have ongoing abdominal symptoms, such as pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea (postcholecystectomy syndrome). This occurs because of alterations in bile flow, which normally is stored in the gallbladder between meals and squeezed into the intestines after meals. Following cholecystectomy, the bile flows continuously into the intestines and cause irritation.
