HIDA scan score was 39

Doctor had no advice except to say it was considered "border line"---didn't have any advice on diet etc....

I'm going to limit my fat to try to delay/prevent surgery....not sure if that is possible.

Re: HIDA scan score was 39

Cutting fat will probably cut back on attacks as the digestive system is not sending CCK to the gallbladder telling it to contract.

However, there is a school of thought that if you go low fat, that the gallbladder won't contract often enough and the bile will sit there and form crystals and then stones, I don't know if this is true, just tossing it out for thought.
