After all my tests, the hidascan showed that my gallbladder is functioning 0%. The Dr plans to take it out in the next couple weeks. I have never had as much as a stomachache before this whole problem started about 6 months ago. I just woke up with a pain one day that never went away. Since there was no obvious cause for it, I'm wondering if something else has caused my gallbladder problems. Anyone know anything that has commonly caused the gallbladder to stop working?
My husband had a non functioning gallblader and they removed it, now(4 years later) they are sending him to the mayo clinic to check for sphincter of odi dysfunction. Someone on here told me that their opinion was, you have the sphincter of odi dysfunction first and that makes the gallblader go bad,then when they take it out, it eventually makes the pancreas go bad. Just a theroy but makes perfect sense to me.
