Avatar n tn I have pain in my abdomen about my navel kinda more to the right. Sometimes I get really nauseated it kinda feels like I'm having a gallbladder attack but I had my gallbladder removed, had a endoscope and colonoscope that came back clear.
Avatar f tn Hi, just a positive HIDA may not be an indication for gallbladder removal. If gallbladder ejection fraction is below 35% is considered to be gallbladder dyskinesia. If there is gallbladder dyskinesia, you should be having fatty food intolerance and sometimes pain in the right upper quadrant if there is evidence of gallstones or inflammation of the gallbladder. If due to non-functionality of the gallbladder, there is stasis of bile, it could predispose to gallstone formation.
Avatar f tn I am a 50 year old female and am approximately 70 pounds overweight. My gallbladder has been removed. In the last two months, I go three to four days without a bowel movement. I then have an uncomfortable morning of loose stools. This lasts about three hours, and then I am fine. I begin to feel abdominal cramps again after one good day (especially upon eating), then--lather, rinse, repeat. I do have tenderness on my right side--exactly across from where my gallbladder used to be.
Avatar f tn I HAVE HAD FULLNESS PRESSURE AND LIKE A BLOWN UP BALLOON FEELING ON MY LEFT SIDE FOR 3 MONTHS ITS DRIVING ME INSANE I HAD BREAST CANCER 2 YEARS AGO SO OF COURSE I THIN CANCER MY DOCTOR DOESNT WANT TO SEE ME ANYMORE SHE SAYS THERES NOTHING WRONG BUTTTT I DISAGREE I HAVE HAD AN XRAY OF MY STOMACH CHEST CT SCAN WITH AND WITHOUT CONTRAST COLONOSCOPY ENDOSCOPY 3 SETS OF BLOOD WORK AND THEY TOLD ME I HAVE A HYITAL NERNIA AND GALLSTONE BUT THATS NOT WHAT THE PROBLEM IS THERE IS NO PAIN JUST DISCOMFORT
Avatar f tn Gallstones may be in the gallbladder for years without causing any symptom. Colonoscopy is "event" which may trigger these symptoms. Colonoscopy may even trigger IBS. Anyway, you can't really know without investigation. Again, it could be gallbladder or biliary duct, which are two different things, and especially bile duct disorders often don't show with regular ultrasound.
Avatar n tn ultra sound showed no blockage in liver or gallbladder, colonoscopy and endoscopy found polyp in colon and polyps in stomach... i hav eupper right quadrant pain.. lost 20 pounds. non hepatitis c and b both test non reactive. can anyone please help me?
Avatar n tn The colonoscopy found 2 benign polyps. At the same time I had an endoscopy and had my diseased gallbladder removed. When the pain first started I thought it might be the CO2 migrating around from the gallbladder removal since I had a similar acute pain in my shoulder the first day after the surgery which was explained as being due to the CO2. But after nearly 2 weeks post surgery the CO2 should be fully absorbed. I have no chills or fever - just the constant hip pain.
Avatar f tn The colonoscopy might show something, but it probably won't. However a colonoscopy is a good idea to make sure nothing more serious is going on. Have you tried making dietary and lifestyle changes?
Avatar n tn i have had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, ct, and gallbladder ultrasound 6mos. ago....yet my right upper quadrant and abdominal pain has worsened and burns and radiates to my back...very uncomfortable..hard to sit..sleep...bend over....if this isnt gallbladder...which i believe it is...what else could be going on?
Avatar f tn how many times have the tested your gallbladder i was told possible gallbladder disease???
Avatar f tn I went through all kinds of tests including EGD, colonoscopy, HIDA scan and one just a month ago to check for hiatal hernia. All the tests are coming back normal. (Both of my grandmothers had their gallbladder removed with the same symptoms) I now am having sharp pains under my breast bone in between my rib cage. It hurts sometimes so bad that it drops me to my knees. When the pain goes away the spot is still very tender to the touch.
Avatar m tn Hi community - first post, so be kind! Several months ago I started experiencing intermittent stomach/intestinal issues (occasional diarrhea, but no blood or discoloration, but mostly it was a constant upset stomach, and the feelings that I always had to pass gas, but couldn't). After a series of consults, the doctors recommended a colonoscopy/endoscopy. It's worth noting that my health was fine, and there's no family history of GI related issues.
Avatar n tn I have intermittent diarrhea maybe 2-3 times a week. Colonoscopy is clear, CT scan is clear, HIDA shows my gallbladder functioning at 16% and I am advised to have it removed (no stones). I am avoiding buttery food. Sometimes I get bloated and uncomfortable but NOT severe pain UNLESS I eat a steak that is cooked in butter. The surgeon said my diarrhea isn't due to the nonfunctioning gallbladder. What should I do next?
Avatar n tn Hi......if your gallbladder has been ruled out then I feel certain they will be able to diagnose you with the endoscopy. It could be several things, and they're doing the right thing by running the necessary tests to determine what is causing this. It's just a shame they didn't do the upper scope when you had your colonoscopy. I hope your appt. is soon, if not call the office and let them know how bad you feel, they keep appt.
Avatar f tn Ironic that i have to stop taking it though b/c i need a colonoscopy on Thursday...one binds you up, and the prep for the colonoscopy cleans you out! We'll see i guess. thanks again for your thoughts.
Avatar f tn 3 years ago I had microsurgery gallbladder operation.every 2 to 3 months interval I feel pain at gallbladder area.every time initially pain is low but after few hours I feel heavy pain and pain to breathing and pain in right soulder. Temperature rising 99 to 100.After one day pain intensity become low and after 3 days it automatically gone.I have endoscopy, colonoscopy,usg,scan but nothing find out. Please help me and let me know why this is happening?
Avatar n tn My daughter (19) has had continued diahrea for about 9 months - had scans and stool tests (no colonoscopy yet) - everything normal. Treating the diahrea for possible"habba syndrome" and giving her colestid - it helped for about 1 month reducing the diahrea to almost normal (soft stool) but now it is recurring more frequently again - colestid was increased to see if that helps - slight help. Now she is experiencing pain in right side under ribs....
Avatar n tn Had my gallbladder removed 13 months ago, since Oct 4 2008, chronic diarreha and left lower abdominal ache, they did all tests, now doing a stool test for fat in stool, malabsorption, and scheduled for colonoscopy to biopsy for some kind of colitis.
Avatar n tn In short, yes, in the forms of (a) undetected stones, and (b) gallbladder dyskinesia. (There are a few uncommon possibilities such as SOD.) Note, however that the nausea and vomiting may be indicative of a more global motility problem.
Avatar f tn You should have had an ultrasound of your upper abdomen instead of a CT scan because the CT has a lot of radiation. An ultrasound can check your liver, pancreas, gallbladder, all without radiation. If your HIDA scan wasn't with CCK, it wouldn't help show if your gallbladder stopped working or not. Have you been tested for Celiac disease? Did they do an upper or just lower endoscopy?
Avatar m tn I am an 18 year old female. Within the past 4 months I began having regular GI problems and finally made an appointment with my GI doctor. He ordered a full workup including blood work, an ultrasound, and a colonoscopy. The radiologist pointed out that I clearly have polyps in my gallbladder, but couldn't see any gallstones. I have my colonoscopy this Friday (10/18) to rule out any other causes of my symptoms.
