    im glad you finally have an answer! it stinks though that your GB is causing it and you had to suffer before finding out. Have they told you what the next step is?

    i had my doctors appointment. i had to have bloodwork done that they didnt do at the ER. plus i have to have a MRI done. she said they will probably call me by the end of the week to schedule. she looked at the ultrasound and she said it looks like my duct is dialated so i could still have a stone stuck or sludge. this is the same ultrasound the ER doctors looked at and they didnt catch it. That was frustrating! i should have the lab results back in a few days and i go back to the GI doc next month. She also put me on Carafate. So i guess a step in the right direction. hopefully the Carafate can provide relief.

    Im glad you are finally getting answers and i pray that everything starts looking up for you.

    Vivian, that's great news. You're so lucky, everybody worldwide thinks the NHS is a gold standard service., but it's far, far frim it.

    Glad you've got your HIDA results and quickly too and seeing a gastro within days. I waited 6 weeks for my CT scan results, 6 weeks for my MRCP scan results and even weeks for my ultrasound results.

    I'm having a HIDA on the 27th. Can i ask how long yours took pls? Also i remember you were anxious, did you take a benzo? I will be taking some diazepam.
