In brief: Unlikely

While no test is perfect; a normal HIDA essentially shows that the gallbladder is functioning well.
There are " quantitative" HIDA scans that are more sensitive than a regular scan. It is more likely that your pain is not from the gallbladder ( often difficult to exactly pin down, but you are unlikely to get improvement having the gallbladder removed.
