I had a hida scan earlier today and i'm still experience waves of nausea and I am lightheaded....Is this common?

I have reflux disease and will probably have the nissan procedure next month...My surgeon wanted to check out my gallbladder since he could easily remove during the procedure...I have wondered about my gallbladder since I am what they call fair, fat and forty....At times I have upper chest pain on the right side....It can go into my arm and at times I feel like I am having muscle spasms in my back....I often experience a fullness in my thighs and butt.....They usually don't last the 30 to 40 minutes that is suggested with symptoms I have read about....I had an ultrasound in jan. And it showed nothing.....I have read through the other threads and decided to start a new one....Sherri

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your symptoms are mostly due to GERD but gall bladder functions should be assessed and your doctor is right, if functions declined, can be opted for a release.

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
