They had me go  ultrasound i do not have family doc decided to close with out telling me. I can't get test read back to me for 2 1/2 weeks(when i see surgeon) but the hospital gave me a record of what they found out. This is what it says
Finding: the pancreas and surrounding soft tissues are normal. No ascites. The lube is intact with no mass. The echogenicity and contour of liver are normal. Diffuse increased echoes within the gallbladder suggest echogenic bile. No stones the gallbladder walls is not thickened the hepatic duct is normal measuring 3mm the right kidney is normal

I don't understand the time delays but the ultrasound is not normal and could represent the cause of your episode. Other sources should be ruled out as gallbladder sludge can be a secondary finding to such things as dehydration, etc. Sludge does not have the same implications as stones but would suggest gallbladder disease.
