Hey Guys & Gals...
Been a stressful month & I'll have to catch up on everyone when I get a chance to breath.
Question: Had what I believe to be a gallbladder spasm attack about 10 days ago that sent me to the ER in the middle of the night. ER ran a CT scan with no contrast or dye. Results showed no stones. GP scheduled a followup abdominal CT with contrast/dye and a CCK Padida test in the morning. I understand that the CCK injection is supposed to envoke symptoms of a gallbladder attack/spasm as they are montoring the gallbladder function. Yippee! What the heck is in the CCK injection and does anyone else have any experience with this test?
Figure if it turns out to be a gallbladder problem that requires surgery....just yet another spare body part I'll have to give up!
Thanks in advance for any input!
