Is there any test that can prove/disprove gall bladder disease?

My daughter has every symptom of gall bladder disease except jaundice. She has had an ultrasound and x-ray. There are no stones and the pictures look fine. Is there any test that can prove/disprove gall bladder disease? I heard that eating a banana will give us a definite answer. It sounds like hogwash, but many wives-tales have been proven to have merit. Does this one?

Welcome to to HCM. Thanks for posting your query. I understand your concerns.
Eating banana doesn't help in anyway to know about the gallbladder disease.

These are wrong notions spread in the general population.

As scan is normal. No need to worry. If still symptoms are persistent, you can do ct scan to rule out the things.

Hope you are happy with the answer.

Thank you
