All of my test results have came back normal today for my gallbladder but my doctor still thinks it's my gallbladder. He has referred me to see a surgeon. Will they still remove if I am having gallbladder symptoms? I am still very sick and can not keep any foods down and have lots of upper right abdomen pain.

Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum. There are many possibilities to your symptoms.Upper right abdominal pain can be caused by biliary colic, cholecystitis(inflammation of gall bladder), irritable bowel syndrome, hepatitis(inflammation of the liver), kidney stones, pneumonia, musculoskeletal pain,lower rib fracture and pancreatitis.

Although your symptoms are indicative of gall bladder disease but since the HIDA scan has come out normal, gall bladder disease is less likely. Pnacreatitis is another possibility which needs to be ruled out.I suggest you to discuss these possibilities especially pancreatitis ruled out from a physician.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
