hi gang!
well i got to tell you, this put me over the edge!!
i made a mistake by going a local gastro doctor, instead of my regular doc,because i was to lazy to go him,
now here is the story
after giving him all my history about my gallbladder, as many of you already know
we started talking about the hida/cck test for a gallbladder emptying,
keep in mind for all of you new members who may not know about this test
i told the new doc that i had 2ULTRA SOUNDS
2 CAT SCANS, AND ALL SHOWED NOTHING WRONG!
no stones nada, he ask then how did i get my gallbladder remove?
i told him that i had a HIDA/CCK scan done,

then it started, he said that a hida/cck scan is not conclusive and he don't use it, well then i just happen to have my patholgy report along with my hida/cck results,
my scan was zero,my path report stated multiple stones and thicken walls,
he read those two reports and said that ultra sound and ct scan should been enough
and started to get a little jumpy
when i said that the hida/cck should be one of the first test to be done to see if the gallbladder is working, a hida/cck will not show stones!!! but it will tell you if your g/b is working,
so i said when they do a ultra sound and it shows NO stones then thats it right, a ultra sound DOES NOT SHOW if and how well your g/b is working!! neither does CAT SCAN!!
SO I SAID TO HIM JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU TOLD THAT THIER GALLBLADDER WAS OK!!
IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN A HIDA/CCK,
and are still sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!he just had no commet on that one, but i bet he is thinking about it

it just happens that this non believer has a e- mail address, and guess what!!!!!
you guess it,
i sent him the proof about the hida/cck just a few minutes ago, as some of you may know a bad gallbladder could mimic ibs!!
so in my opinion if you have been told that your gallbladder is find and dandy and did not have a hida/cck scan and still feel like hell, GET ONE, you do not need stones to have a bad gallbladder, there is a ton of info on this under the search mode on top of this board, just type in gallbladder
good luck to all

Oh Charlie, don't get me started. I'm having a problem right now with my new GYN Dr who's really pissed me off and I'm trying to calm down before I write her my letter. Your little note didn't help me any. I agree with you tho, I've had all those tests and keep pestering my doc's until I get the answers I feel comfortable with.

Way to go Charlie! Would you like to come with me to my doctor's appointments? Ha! Ha!! I think more patients need to be confronting doctors so then maybe the medical practice will change their attitudes and bedside manner with patients. Why are doctors so closed minded and many filled with misinformation. As my aunt who is nurse says, "many doctors practice lazy medicine."
