Hida Scan 29% infraction

I have just had a hida scan and my infraction rate was 29%, my ultrasound showed no stones.  My GI doctor thinks I have IBS or GERD and says removing my gall bladder will not make me feel better.  I am scheduled for an endoscopy next but will that show anything related to my gall bladder?

Endoscopy will show nothing related to your gallbladder unless they find bile reflux. The upper endoscopy will show what is going on in the esophagus, stomach and first part of the duodenum. Your doc is probably looking for evidence of GERD with the endoscopy.
