Hyperactive Gallbladder Symptoms
What can you tell me about hyperactive gallbladder? Ejection fraction 90% last year, and 94% this year. Should it be removed if symptoms persist?
Maybe: Hyperkinetic or hyperactive gallbladder is not generally accepted as a diagnosis. A small group of patients (63) was symptomatic with cck infusion with greater than 80% ejection fraction. 28 of these patients underwent removal of gall bladder. 97% of these 28 patients showed improvement in symptoms following surgery..

The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct. The gallbladder can store bile when the bile is not needed, and can squeeze bile into the bile duct and intestine for digestion when a person eats larger ...Read more
I had a hida scan that came back at 74%. Is that too low for a hyperactive gallbladder? I'm experiencing pain under right rib, nausea, and vomiting
74% is normal: Hida scan with cck augmentation normal range is typically greater than 50%, with 35% to 50% being "borderline" and less than 35% being abnormal. The gallbladder should contract with cck (an analog of a hormone that causes gallbladder emptying) if it is responding/working normally. The hida portion examines the liver cells that make bile and the bile ducts to make sure they are not blocked.See 3 more doctor answers

Gallbladder symptoms: "biliary" symptoms are sub-acute onset of right upper quadrant abdominal discomfort (radiates to right shoulder blade, crescendoing over several minutes, resolving over 6-8 hours +/-nausea/vomit. This typically occurs after a fatty meal due to a gallstone becoming impacted in the cystic duct (connection of gallbladder to biliary tree). Acalculous cholecystitis is a sick gallbladder without stones.See 1 more doctor answer
Avoid fats, or OR: Fatty foods often trigger the gallbladder to contract and makes the symptoms worse. 95% of patients who are actively having gallbladder pain will continue to have problems until the gallbladder is removed. So, you might consider or.See 1 more doctor answer
Rare: It's would be unusual. Most people have symptoms from "bad gallbladder." some people have bad gallbladder on us but its from other sources (hepatitis, heart failure, ascites, hepatic flexure diverticulitis etc). Sometimes, diabetics and pts with severe vascular diseases can have bad gallbladder that can cause gangrene but with min to no symptoms. This is very uncommon.
Classic symptoms: Are epigastric and right upper quadrant abdominal pain, starting two or three hours after a heavy or fatty meal, with radiation to right shoulder blade, lasting six to eight hours, in a forty year old plump woman with multiple births. But hardly anyone has all, or even any, of the the classic symptoms.
