The problem you described could be secondary to gallbladder problems. The relationship between meals and abdominal discomfort is characteristic for gallbladder problems. I understand a HIDA scan was already done, an ultrasound and blood work can also be done. For now avoid fatty meals and continue your regular medications. Follow with your doctor and complete a full evaluation. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Please rate my answer so I can be compensated for the time I took to answer for question.

HIDA scan will be the best approach for now. They will do blood work if required.
