Ultrasound good... Now time for HIDA SCAN



Recommended Posts

So surgeon called saying my ultrasound came back good. No issues other than a small note that my spleen is borderline oversized. But other than that its all good. Next up they are ordering a HIDA scan. basically they inject you with this radioactive stuff that your liver filters out and into your gall bladder, Then they see it on a Gamma Camera. Then they inject you with a synthetic hormone to simulate you eating a very fatty meal to get your gall bladder to empty itself so they can see that process on the gamma camera. Shall see how that goes.

I had hundreds of gallstones, but they never showed on ultrasound. A CT scan showed them, but the doctor told me to trust the ultrasound. Several years and much pain later, they finally took out my gallbladder. Hopefully they will find your problem quickly.

very interesting. I doubt they will order a CT Scan but that is easily fixed. I can buy a lab order online for 40 bucks. Did it last year for an MRI for my chest lol.

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
