Brother it is almost exactly te way you describe it. I went through almost 3 years of doctors saying tere is nothing wrong with my wrap. I had 3 different GI doctors and finally talked with my thoracic surgeon who just happened t ask me at my first visit to him about a lung issue who did my Nissen. I remembered he asked and I questioned him about whether he also did these surgeries. He said he did and asked me what the problem was. I explained everything to him and he said that since the local GIs couldn't figure out what was wrong he didn't feel comfortable operating on me for this, but wanted to see if he could find someone who specialized in this. HE sent me to a teaching hospital and they took about 3 to 4 months of all new testings to figure out what was wrong and then fixed it. DON"T GIVE UP!!
If you don't get the right answers, move on to someone willing to help. I had to learn the hard way that not every surgeon who says they can do this operation can do it correctly. I trusted my frist surgeon because my wife worked for te hospital and he did my gall bladder surgery and was well thought of. I didn't research his ability to do this operation though. I asked if he could do it and he said no problem. WRONG!
Have you tried any type of ant acid while the symptoms are still there? If not I would ask you please do, even if it is just some type of over the counter. Try to get as much relief as you can. I haven't reread the gallbladder post, but I am curious as to which test you had done. Was it a hidascan or just and ultrasound? Yes bile reflux can mimic acid reflux and be almost as bad for you. The gallbladder attacks can be horrible and it seems most people with GERD also have some type of gallbladder issues. I have no idea why, but it just seems to be.
Please forgive me if I have sounded a little short with responses here lately. I am not trying to be, but I have been in some excruciating pain with these dang stones and stent, but don't want to jus stay away. So again please forgive me if I seem that way, I assure you I am not meaning to be. Also, if you want to feel free to email me any direct questions if you don't feel like posting them here. I don;t mind answering anything I can. I understand the complete frustration you must be going through. I have been dealing with people from work wo don't understand how bad this is when it doesn't go right and they think it shouldn't be a big deal and wonder why you don't show to work or don't perform well at work. I have pretty much been off work now since early January except for a few weeks here and there.
Kitt is a wonderful person and sure has helped me see things I didn't realize was going on in my life many times. I hate to be able to benefit from her past and current pains and such, but am so thankful she can give us her wisdom. Thank you Kitt!

I am going to be on here for a while if you need to talk some. It's a bad night and I can't find any other way to get my mind off the pain.

Take care,
BIll

Actually Rick from this sight had his last quite a long time. I need to go back and read it, but I tink it was somewhere around 12 years or so.
The ultrasound is one of the tests for gallbladders, but it really only shows if there are stones present. Not sure if you should cancel it or not because of the possibility of having stones. The hida scan doesn't detect stones, but does show if there are any issues with filling of the bladder and any emptying issues. It's a fairly straight forward test that does require an IV to introduce the meds for seeing the bladder fill and to make it empty. It took about 2 hours for my test, but mine wouldn't empty. They had me switch positions several times to try and get it to fill faster and then never could get it to empty. I'll be checking for an email.
