I recently had a hida scan. The ejection fraction was 19%. My doctor referred me to a surgeon. While doing the scan, they could not get the tracer to show up in the small intestine, so after 45 minutes, proceeded with the cck injection. I had some nausea and cramping. Since the test, I feel extremely tired, and very bloated. I have very little appetite. My family has a history of gallbladder problems and cancer. Should I be worried?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Its not cancer, just a hypofunctioning gall bladder, likely to be taken out and then managed conservatively for the symptoms will diet lifestyle adjustments.

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
