I have had IBS for years and have been dealing with it but recently the diarrhea has been getting more frequent so has the panic and anxiety from it. I decided to see a doctor about it again and he ordered a HIDA scan. During the scan my gallbladder did not seem to function at all. I still dont' have the results from it yet. My question is what does it mean if my gallbladder doesn't work. I read that 20% of people who have their gallbladders removed suffer from diarrhea as a result. Maybe that is why I've been feeling worse lately? Does anyone know anything?
