I have had pain for over two years. On the right side, under my rib cage. I feel like there is a bubble, or a ball under my rib cage. It's there all the time, and it's worse after I eat. I don't have nausea, i have spells of feeling like I have to have a bm really frequently, but not really much diarrhea. I've had a normal CAT scan and ultrasound, normal blood work, normal endoscopy and colonoscopy. After a Hida scan my doctor recommended me to a surgeon. He said that the scan showed 42%EF., which can be considered a normal number by some. But that it's a grey area of healthy or not. He said a healthy rate was between 50 and 75. But that most surgeons want to see a rate lower than 35 to operate. He still recommended I have mine removed. I have the surgery scheduled for three weeks from now. Anyone had a positive result after removal with these symptoms?
