Re: My HIDA scan = 0%

Pain and nausea are apparently fairly common during a HIDA scan it's related directly to the CCK injection that is supposed to cause the gallbladder to contract.

Gallbladder problems can cause issues further down the digestive system, resulting in diarrhea, etc. This is because the body is dumping bile when it is not supposed to. If the gallbladder is functioning normally-- when you eat your body's natural CCK causes the gallbladder to release bile to help break down food/fat.

Gallbladder surgery is very common; expect recovery to take some time.
