Gallbladder Issues (blech) - November 15th 2016, 12:15 AM

So I have to get two tests done to determine if my gallbladder needs to come out. Apparently I have sludge in it (gross, I know), and some kind of lesion and the doctor thinks that something is blocking one of the tubes in there. So I have to get a HIDA scan and an ERCP.

The HIDA scan I have looked up youtube videos of but I just don't know what my experience will be like and am a little scared. Has anyone here had a HIDA scan done before? I'm supposed to go in on Friday to get it done.

The ERCP I've had done before, this I'm getting done next Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. I fell asleep through it

But yeah, this HIDA scan I'm not sure about. Any experiences or any information you'd like to share? Anything will help ease my fear.

1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

I've not had a HIDA scan (I didn't even know where the gallbladder was ) but I found this on what to expect.

I hope the scan goes smoothly for you. If you have any worries, doubts or concerns you can always talk to the staff about them, and they should be able to reassure you.

Best wishes and let us know how it goes!

The worst part is usually the IV.
