I have had recurring pain under my right ribs for 2 months now. It is definitely much worse after eating, but hurts off and on all the time. My primary care doctor ordered an ultrasound, which was negative. I then had an upper GI, which showed GERD, so I was referred to a gastroenterologist. He has since ordered an EGD, a CT scan, and an MRI, all of which were negative for everything except a small cyst on my liver, which he said is not what is causing my pain. I asked about a HIDA scan, but he said that he is "not a fan" of them because if it comes back abnormal it doesn't really mean anything. Also, my lipase level is slightly elevated at 421. So now I wait another 2 weeks for another appointment with this GI doc to see what other test he wants to do. Should I get a second opinion from a doc who will do the HIDA scan? What else could it be besides my gallbladder? I don't have any stones but continue to have a lot of pain.
