Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

A HIDA scan is an imaging procedure that helps track the production and flow of bile from your liver to your small intestine. You must have been advised this to see if there is any obstruction to the bile flow due to the polyps. However, the decision for surgery will depend on the severity of the symptoms and how much of dysfunction they are causing you. So, please discuss this in detail with your doctor and make an informed decision.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
