What are the signs of having gall bladder disease?
I have symptoms of gallbladder disease. Sharp upper right quadrant pain. Doctors checked for stones and negative. Next I m having a Hida scan. Been constipated for a week and now when I tried and wiped I had a pink mucus discharge and a pink drop in the bowl. Could this also be from gallbladder disease?
Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
Gallbladder disease can present with right upper quadrant pain, jaundice and fever. The blood and mucus stool you had is not a symptom of gallbladder disease. It indicates you are having colitis. This could be due to infection or inflammatory bowel disease. Stool analysis and if needed a colonoscopy may be done to find the cause. I hope that answers your question. Regards, Dr.R.K.
