saw surgeon

now I have to have a HIDA scan done this afternoon. I am nervous. I just feel like there is something wrong with these pains. He said he doesnt "think" anything is wrong, he just wants to make sure the ile isOK? I hope all is OK, he also said it ould just be the post operative pains, since im not taking pain meds. I just can't stand these sharp pains when i breath deeper. thanks all. ill let you know when I find out the results. Anyone know how long that takes?

Re: saw surgeon

The nuclear medicine teh said my hida looked good, but of ourse the radiologist has to read it first, then send it to doc. Hope that Im OK. Pains still here!

Re: saw surgeon

Hi Dani!

The nuclear med tech probably knows a lot, just has to let the radiologist give a doctor's approval. IF there was a problem ( from my experience) the tech won't say a word and then call the doctor to let them tell you. I had an ultrasound on my legs after the gb surgery to rule out bloodclots. The tech told me the procedure of notifying me on the results, but basically she was able to tell me that there was no problem. It has to do with covering themselves, so the fact that the tech said things were fine, then go on that. I am glad the Hida came back fine. Do you have the pain all the time or does it seem to come and go? Do you want pain meds? I took them and it really helped ease the recovery. I think I was able to relax and sleep better thus allowing my body to mend. Hang in there and maybe take a pain killer just to take the edge off.

You will be fine!
