Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I have read your post, what question about this would you like me to answer?
Can the symptoms of a sluggish gallbladder be bloating, gas, nausea, indigestion -cramping fairly regularly -mid section-waist -etc. And what is the remedy for this?
What you are referring to is gall bladder akinesia, and it is diagnosed by an ultrasound
The treatment is removal of the gall bladder
I had the sono of the abdomen a few months ago -normal-no gallstones -nothing out of whack.
It would have to be a gall bladder ultrasound
With the removal of the gallbladder, I am assuming the problems would then disappear. Is a HIDA scan appropriate to do? I have already had CAT scan of abdomen and pelvic area, endoscopy, Hydrogen breath test, colonoscopy...hiatal hernia evident -colitis -45 cm on left side now under control with meds (& which I have had for 40 years off and on)
I see, a HIDA scan will assess your gall bladder and the ducts
Is this appropriate now to do? The gastro dr wants to do the camera scan of the bowel -the colon dr suggests the HIDA scan and to check the pancreas -Is a check on the pancreas a different test?
The HIDA scan is reasonable, the pancreas tests are blood tests
Can the symptoms of a sluggish gallbladder be constant and not just occur after a meal?
Yes, they can be constant
