Customer Question

This is Dr. David
why did you get the hida scan to begin with?
where you having symptoms from your gall bladder?
if you are not having symptoms, you might not need to have it removed.

Thought you had access to our original discusseion on the 3rd. Yes I was having bloating and pain and also some pressure in pelvic area . US and CT revealed nothing
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
I have that question
you were having weight loss, stomach gurgling, early fullness.
some of those symptoms could be from excessive stomach acid.
or it could be due to non functioning gall bladder.
if you don't get your gall bladder out, you could continue to have your symptoms
