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

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

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

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

Coding error?: I agree. Sounds like the more appropriate ICD-10 code for your finding was K80.20 = Calculus of gallbladder w/o cholecystitis w/o obstruction. Perhaps your provider has however other data that supports a diagnosis of cholestasis (K71.0, K83.1). ...Read more

What can I do for underactive gallbladder?  Had gb ultrasound w normal result, but suffer from gb attacks, especially diarrhea.  Seems not enough bile

Cannot diagnose: Strongly suggest that you see a GI doctor. An ultrasound may exclude clinically relevant stones but does not effect functionality of gall bladder. Do not know what gb attacks are in your case, but you should definitely be seen, diagnosed and management options discussed. ...Read more

Gallbladder sludge with cholelithiasis, lots of inflammation..Diseased gallbladder. Cholecytomy monday. What's some issues that con from lap 2open sur?

More info: A little more information would be useful. Generally the difficulties of inflammation will get worse by delaying the entire weekend. Thickened, firm, "woody edema" from prolonged inflammation can obscure what is called critical view and make laparoscopy difficult. If your surgical team is waiting, usually more details. Encourage you ask for additional information. ...Read more

I have had chronic nausea and belching for 8 weeks. No vomiting. No H. Pylori. No GERD. Antacids don't help. No gall pain. 

What could this be?

Belching: Belching can be a sign of gallbladder issues even without gallstones. If not done have a HIDA scan with CCK. Could also be delayed gastric emptying. Could be reflux related even without typical reflux symptoms. Minimize carbonation and get further workup. ...Read more

Can h pylori cause gallbladder problems? Hida scan showed dysfunctional gallbladder with no stones and no obstructions. Tested positive for h pylori.

Possibly: H. Pylori species, have been implicated as a possible cause of chronic gall bladder disease, inflammation in bile ducts, gall-bladder carcinoma and primary hepatic carcinomas. Dna of h. Pylori have been found in association with gall bladder disease but not the presence of the viable organisms. Further research needs to be performed to see if this organism causes biliary diseases. ...Read more

Can a gallbladder sludge cause inflammation in the gallbladder with no symptoms?

Can a gallbladder sludge cause inflammation in the gallbladder with no symptoms?

Its possible: Sludge is very small stones. The majority of gallstones are symptom free. The symptoms are pain after eating, bloating, belching and progress to severe frequent pain that lasts longer and longer. Fever, vomiting and complication of pancreatitis or liver obstruction are potentially life threatening. Okay to talk to your doctor about your diagnosis and your health. Good luck. ...Read more

I have frequent heat/pain in chest. Tests eliminated GERD/cardio. US shows sludge in GB (no stones), and HIDA EF is 37%. Does that warrant GB removal?

No: I do not think that what you describe is gallbladder related. I would be interested in learning the tests that you say ruled out reflux. Also consider an esophageal condition like esophageal spasm. Give the information you submitted, I would be against removing your gallbladder at present time. www.drlugo.com ...Read more

Is it possible to have a gangrene gall bladder with no pain only fever and nausea? HIDA scan showed 15% EF. ultrasound normal.

Highly unlikely: This life-threatening condition is an acute medical emergency. If the doctor believes a patient has gallbladder gangrene, the recommendation is immediate surgery. If the patient is not stable for surgery or if severe infection has set in, the doctor will treat the patient with antibiotics with the goal of quelling the infection so a surgeon can operate. Anything is possible but this is not likely. ...Read more
