Hi all, I went to a private gastro today and she wants a HIDA scan to check my gallbladder and how its functioning due to all the issues and symptoms I have, so she can sort out how quickly I need sorting out. I already know its full of stones confirmed by ultrasound. My issue is the radiation. I have other medical issues and have had PET/CT, CTS ( multiple) and x rays and am terrified about the radiation risks.
Also I have read that you cannot go near your kids, is this true?
I booked in for the scan but now wish I knew about all this when I was at the appointment and could of asked and gone over my concerns, but was expecting to go for this scan and knew little about it.
Not sure if this is needed and if to cancel and ring her?
