I just came home from my 3rd scope. Right now I am on the 48 hr Bravo. I have GERD and gastritis. I have had my gallbladder out and the TIF sugery (for the GERD) The jury is still out on weather or not it worked.
Ever since my gallbladder stopped working my stomach has been a mess. I have been nauseous more hours than not. Also ALL the Gerd symptoms andemergency room gallbladder pain.
So the Dr. took the gallbladder. I did all the tests to verify that I have GERD. I do so they did the TIF surgery.
Today my doctor found that since I don't have a gallbladder anymore . All the bad stuff like bile is being dumped in my stomachcausing pain and the nausea. He also thinks my TIF worked and looks perfect and to go back to my Gallbladder Dr. so he can fix and move my intestines. Whick he said is MAJOR surgery. Help..... someone. Anyone ever have this.
So to answer your ?'s I had the Hida scan which showed my gallbladder wasn't working. However, they didn't find the stones until they took the gallbladder out. From my experience it sounds like your problem is twofold; GERD and gallbladder. Both difficult and time consuming to diagnose.
