An ultrasound will just look for gall stones. A HIDA scan will check the gallbladder for functionality. Ask for a HIDA! Insist on it. My ultrasounds were always okay. My HIDA scan showed 0% functionality meaning it stopped working. I finally got the HIDA scan in the hospital because I was admitted for possible appendicitis. Something was rotting -- it was my gallbladder!

When that fat came down the line, my gallbladder was not able to squeeze out the necessary bile to digest the fat.

Now, I can consume lots of fat without my GB.

I will tell you it is a family curse! Everyone said it was my gallbladder that caused me to pass out (there are seven kids in Dad's family and six have had their gallbladders removed -- no stones.....) But since I was a kid, I had to suffer over 25 years!

Read up on gallbladders. I did not have any classic symtoms. Pain was never in the upper right quadrant. Pain was in lower abdominal area and lasted 12 hours. I passed out with each attack and would vomit upon awakening.

Something to think about....

Indeed. My gallbladder was at 5% and ultrasounds and blood tests were normal. The HIDA scan was the only thing that found it. I had pain in the upper right though.
 No gallstones.


Have you tried eating smaller meals throughout the day instead of larger ones?

What do you mean?  I think they are starting with cheese or cheese and pepperoni?  That way they can keep the ingredients separate

I was commenting that they only seem to be offering tomato sauce with cheese or pepperoni.
