I'm new to the group, but have been suffering with what we think are gallbladder issues for a while now.
It got really bad 6 weeks ago, requiring 6 ER visits, GI visit, scans, ultrasounds, bloodwork... Finally, I was given the Hida scan, and it showed an ejection fraction of 91%. My GI says it's normal, but I disagree as I have since heard of many other people who had the typical gallbladder symptoms without visible stones, but a high ejection fraction.
I am due to meet a surgeon soon to discuss surgery. I'm very nervous, and I have tried many natural remedies to support my gallbladder, but the past 6 weeks I have been pretty much bedridden with constant nausea, pain under right ribcage into my back, right shouldee, neck, waist... Walking seems to make it worse, even standing up to take a shower.
Bloodwork and endoscopy all normal, my diet has always been healthy and balanced, but I do suffer from the auto inmune disease Hashimotos since age 13 (am 30 now).
I'm just scared I will get the gb removed and won't improve, or get worse... But I also can't stay like this, so I need to make up my mind soon.
Just wondering if there are other people who had issues with their gallbladder due to a high ejection fraction.
