Hyperkinetic GallBladder and abdominal pain

I have been having upper abdominal pain and two trips to ED for this. Sudden, severe pain, sweating, nausea. Had ultrasound, Endoscop, two CT's, ruled out pancreas, liver and stomach. Small hiatal hernia and grade Esophagitis and Gerd. Had gastric emptying. All normal, except HIDA scan which showed 96% EF or Hyperkinetic GB. GI doctor thinks I should see a surgeon to have it removed. Interest sting thing though, is that the pain I felt with HIDA/CCK was right side under my ribcage intense cramping. The pain I feel when I go to the ED or after eating is middle upper abdomen. I have been eating a low fodmap low fat diet. Doesn't matter what I eat the pain is there. I definitely don't try to eat fatty foods. I keep my fat intake under 35 grams a day. averaging 25 grams. Here is my question anyone have their GB removed for hyperkinesia? I do not have any gallstones or sludge. My GI doctor said to keep ruling out the pain surgery would be next. It would either cure it, or it is indicator the pain is coming from somewhere else. OMG. Anyone have this? How was your surgery experience?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Gall bladder should not be removed for hyperkinesia. I would suggest you ECG, if its fine then you would need upper GI endoscopy.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
