I have gastritis & stomach inflammation. Ultrasounds shows some small nonshadowing gallstones or polyps (unsure). Should I have  nuclear medicine?

Abdominal discomfort: If the abdominal discomfort is moderately severe and you are tired of living with it, then the nuclear medicine (a hida scan) is a very logical next step.
