Re: HIDA scan. What to expect?

Yeah... it's just boring. Other than getting the IV put in, it really doesn't hurt at all. You just lay there. Also, it's not really a claustrophobic test, because the machine is very open. You don't actually go inside the machine, it just has an arm that goes above your abdomen. I went alone, so I don't know if visitors are allowed. I didn't have any trouble with the injection with side effects or anything.
