  1. RT @perlmutations: Anybody out there wanna see #HellboyIII as much as I do? Let's get this muthafucka trending, y'all! Let's end the trilog…

  2. I was lucky in that I know a few people that had serious gallbladder issues, and they said to push for the hida scan. The ultrasound found nothing for me either...just some "sludge" but they said it wasn't important. Doc was very surprised when the hida came back so low. It is twingy on and off so I'm sure it will eventually get painful enough to remove...I won't wait once I have one of those attacks! I feel bad you all had to go through so much pain with yours, that's awful.
  3. Hi everyone. Thank you for the replies! I have to find out what exactly was on the blood test panel. Shadow...I see the list of tests that one should get and I'm sure it wasn't complete. I will request the list from my doc to see what was on their panel. I have been gluten-free on and off for a few months so I will have to weigh getting back on again for further testing. I feel a little better right now gluten-free for a few days! Power- I def do not have the gallbladder pain. I have seen people that have...sweating and lookin like they're going to pass out...I get twinges here and there but I eat pretty low fat so I only feel it when I have an avocado or beef which I rarely have. So I'm hesitant to take it out even if it is functioning at 6%. The docors both said I should not worry about leaving it in if I am not in pain. I just hate to cut out so much if it's not gluten. I'm sure you all understand! This is frustrating.
  4. Sudden symptoms that arose last fall...SUPER bloating, like I look pregnant again after eating, and really bad constant heartburn. Tried the tums, otc heartburn stuff, nothing helped. I'm on a heavier prescription for that now, but I have osteoporosis in my family and do not want to take it : ( Symptoms I have had most of my life...heartburn once in while, constipation, migraines, diarrhea, fuzzy brain, serious enough anxiety that I have previously been on meds, and it's been really bad again lately, psoriasis (head). I did get the "celiac panel" blood test just last week which came back negative. I do see on here that I may need more tests...but I have to find out what exactly was on that panel. I stopped eating gluten around xmas and did feel better. It was hard though and I eventually went back to it for the last 2.5 months or so thinking that wasn't my issue. I did just start again and am off my heartburn med for now, with no issues. This month I was finally diagnosed with Biliary Diskenesia, basically my gallbladder empties just barely. My hida scan came back with 6% functionality. I thought all these stomach issues were symptoms of that. The second opinion I went to to talk about surgery, insists they are not related. The first doc thought they were maybe related. So that puts me back to square one with all the stomach issues. My gallbladder doesn't hurt so I'm keeping it for now unless it starts hurting. But if I thought it would help with the stomach issues I would so take that sucker out! Any thoughts from you all? I thought I read something about many people with gluten/celiac issues having gallbladder issues too. I guess I just want an answer...which I'm starting to realize I may never get and I may just have to be zen about that! I'm trying : ) Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
