Gallbladder Pain

lacole725 posted:
Hello,

I've been having gallbladder pain for about a month now. Ultrasound showed nothing but HIDA scan revealed 19% ejection fraction. I talked to the surgeon and he said isn't sure if removing the gallbladder will alleviate my pain and sent me for a CT scan. He hasn't looked at the results yet but his nurse said she didn't see anything bad. I still have the pain constantly, it worsens after I eat sometimes. It even goes into my back at times. I have a hard time working while it is hurting. The surgeon is acting like he doesn't want to do the surgery. Should I go to another surgeon if he doesn't want to do it and is there anything else my symptoms and test results could be associated with?
