A couple of weeks ago I was having some discomfort on my right side so I went to see my doctor, he recomended that I have a HIDA scan done, the results came in and it showed that my gallbladder was working at 9% so it had to be removed. With those results i went to my gastroenterologist and he recomended a Sonogram and a CTscan, both results came out normal and it showed I had no gallstones so he said that I had a lazy bladder and that removal wasn`t necesary. So what can I do? Do I have it removed? What are the chances that may gallblader function will go down from 9%? One more thing the discomfort has gone away.
Maybe get another opinion from another dr. i had my gallbladder removed, had stones though, they never did a hida scan wich i found odd but i am in germany. Maybe ask if there are supplements to help etc. If it becomes more severe the pain that is maybe discuss removing the gallbladder.
I also had a Lazy Gallbladder no stones just sludge and I had mine removed 2 weeks ago my gallbladder was infected I tried everything I know herbally and holistically it worked for about 3 months my last attack made the decision to have it removed, now I can eat what I want again and not be afraid to eat.
9% is clearly abnormal functioning for a gallbladder. Your doctor must have recommended against surgical removal simply because you said your pain went away. If there are no symptoms, then there is no reason to remove a gallbladder. However, pain and discomfort would definitely warrant a removal of a disfunctioning gallbladder.
