Hida Scan results- gallbladder

I had 2 ultrasounds which both showed 3.2mm wall thickening of my gallbladder, and sludge. I had my Hida scan done yesterday and the only result I know is that the EF was 52% which is great.
I am very symptomatic with pain and it has increased over the months to constant.
What is the protocol for thickening walls of the gallbladder? Do you leave it in or take it out?
Isn't it a sign of activity and inflammation?
Thank you.

Make sure you tell them how you felt during and after the HIDA scan that is very important. At least my surgeon told me it was very important for him to know that when I had mine done a couple weeks ago. I just had my GB removed last week. I don't recall having thickening in my GB so I cannot answer your question there. I hope you surgical consult goes well tomorrow.
Good Luck!

What did your hida scan show? Did you have stones?
Thank you for taking the time to answer. :)

No problem!
My HIDA scan did not show any stones. It showed an ejection fraction of 17%. Basically my gallbladder was only functioning at 17%. I do not think it showed anything else. I did have polyps or unmoving stones that were found on ultrasound before the HIDA was done when I was having symptoms.
