Question Why pain during Hyda Scan

Hi everyone. I had a Hyda Scan about 2 weeks. It showed by gallbladder functioning at 87%. Heres my question, If my gallbladder is working fine, then why was I in pain during the second part when they give you the hormone? The pain was about a 6. If anyone can answer, Please do!

I'm pretty sure they give you cholecystokinin during the second half of the HIDA scan. The thing is, you don't necessarily even have to have problems with your gall bladder to feel pain. They give a dose that's higher than the dose of hormone normally found in your body, and the contractions that it induces in the gall bladder are pretty hard...they're bound to cause some pain. If you have some gall bladder pathology on top of that, it can amount to a lot of pain too.

Hi there - even though my hida scan ejection fractures were above 35% - which is what the doctor looks at for the function of the gall bladder, I had a SEVERE pain attack during the 2nd scan when CCK was injected. It felt just like my typical "attacks" I was getting daily after eating. That was the justification my doctor needed to remove my gall bladder - no stones, just severely inflamed and covered in scar tissue at the time of surgery.

Keep us posted,
Katie G
