I am a 32 y/o female and have suffered from severe abdominal pain for years. I have had an upper GI and colonoscopy that showed nothing a few years ago. Just this weekend I went to the ER because I had such a bad episode, I couldn't get out of the car. Anyway, they did an ultrasound and found polyps and sludge in my Gallbladder. I am familiar with these terms. They also found protein in my urine which I am looking to see if anyone else has had all of these symptoms together. They passed off the protein as "could be nothing", but thinking back, I've been told this on a few other dr's visits. They want me to do a hidascan, but I am breastfeeding my 5 month old, and I can't be radioactive right now. BTW, I am normal height/weight, non-smoker, non-drinker, and maintain a fairly healthy lifestyle. I have a follow up later this week, but I would like to hear from anyone that may have had the proteinurea accompanied by the GB polyps/sludge. Please let me know what your outcome was. Thanks.
