Re: HIDA Scan-Has anyone heard of this?
I also had a HIDA scan which wasnt what i really expected. They injected the radioactive dye, told me the test would take about 30-45 mins, left me in the machine for about an hour, then got me up and told me to walk around for 10 minutes to see if the gallbladder would start to empty because it wasnt emptying properly. I came back, they took some more pictures, and the gallbladder just kept swelling, so they told me to get back up and go for a good 20 minute walk...so i did. I came back a third time, gallbladder still wasnt emptying just getting bigger and bigger, they decided not to do the ckc injection, but didnt tell me why. Then they told me to go down to the cafeteria, have something to eat and come back in 45 minutes...i did, when i came back it was slightly emptying but barely. So they sent me home.
Just went to the surgeon a week ago, and the gallbladder comes out in 2 weeks.
