    Symptoms Before GallBladder Surgery-Results

    My questions are:

    1.What were your symptoms before having Gallbladder Surgery?
    2.What was your gall bladder ejection fraction on your Hida Scan w/cck Test?
    3.Did you have Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery?

    4.Were some or all symptoms gone after surgery? which ones?
    5.What new symptoms if at all appeared after having Gall Bladder Removal surgery?

    I ask these questions because I might possibly have the surgery in the future.

    I am diagnosed with:

    1. A malfunctioning gallbladder/not ejecting bile properly.
    Based on HidaScan
    Doctor suggested surgery might help

    2. IBS -C.
    Based on symptoms
    Given Zelnorm to relieve gas & promote bowel movement

    3. Hiatel Hernia
    Based on upper endoscopy.
    No treatment given.Told to live with it

    SYMPTOMS:
    Episodes lasting 2 weeks or more since 1999
    1. Constant pressure/soreness directly below the sternum
    2. Constant extreme stomach gas only (belching)
    3. Constant nausea
    4. Feeling of stomach fullness all day

    5. Occasional Quick sharp horizontal shooting pains around upper abdominal area
    6. Normal bowel movements (once a day).

    TESTS DONE

    1.ABDOMINAL SONAGRAM -Normal
    2.UPPER GI SERIES - Normal
    3.PYLORI TEST - Normal
    4.BLOOD TEST FOR PARASITES - Normal

    5.HIDA SCAN WITH CCK- Results were gall bladder ejection fraction 14% suggests decreased gallbladder function.

    6.ABDOMINAL MRI - Gallbladder is physiologically distended/incidental finding of 2 tiny renal cysts

    7.UPPER GASTRO ENDOSCOPY - Found Hiatel Hernia-told to live with it

    8.CBC- Eosinophils were too high which means possible allergy and/or parasitic condition
