So i had my ultrasound today due to a elevated bilirubin levels. Ultrasound came back good. No stones, nothing at all. So i am guessing next up i will have something called a HIDA scan which they inject me with this radioactive stuff and watch it flow with the gamma cameras. That will be fun... NOT lol.

It’s not bad, feels like nothing. Same type of procedure for a (less noisy slightly more open) MRI with contrast. About halfway through they may ask you to drink a Meal Replacement (it was ensure for me) or administer another med to collect more data.

I will be interested to see what that shows. I had one and it came back that I had a MASS in my stomach and the back of my esophagus the radiologist wasn't sure if it was scar tissue from the surgery so I was referred back to my surgeon and he said it was however I am not sure he even saw the images but he said most likely scar tissue. it has been bothering me since then as the radiologist wanted an endoscope done but this hasn't been ordered by my GP because the surgeon said it was scar tissue. so yeah I am keen to know what other people's scans have shown

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
