Overactive gallbladder

I keep having gallbladder attacks. So far ultrasounds show no gallstones. HIDA scan shows normal output at 66%. The HIDA scan induced an attack causing severe pain & cramping. What now? Anyone else have this problem?

  • I had my gallbladder removed in June of 09 and it was the best thing I did. The quality of my life has improved so much!! It took two years and my changing doctors before the New doctor discovered stones, sent me to a surgeon and the surgeon felt best to have the gallbladder removed. I did not suffer typical pain I was always nauseous vomiting biol, tired.

  • I've been to the ER at 2 different hospitals half a dozen times in the last 3 years. This is the closest I've gotten to a diagnosis.
