Hi all, has anyone had their gallbladder out because of a low HIDA scan, and if so, did you feel better?
I have had nausea for a year and a half and finally had a HIDA scan, which showed 0% ejection fraction. The GI doc said it was a slam dunk and sent me for a surgical consult. However, I saw the surgeon yesterday and he said there's only about a 70% chance of improvement with surgery for people with low functioning gallbladders.
I am desperate to feel better but I am worried that I will get the surgery, not have any improvement, and could even end up worse because of complications like bile salts diarrhea or chonic pain. What do you think, is it worth the risk? Thanks!
