Can gallbladder issues cause your upper abdomen on both sides to feel bloated and slightly tender? Dr says no stones going for hida scan soon.

In brief: If your doctor

has ordered a HIDA scan, he/she strongly suspects gallbladder disease.
US is highly sensitive for detection of gallstones, but no diagnostic test is always 100%. If CCK injection re-produces your symptoms, it is highly likely that cholecystectomy would be advised.
