Hi Jamie and welcome to this adhesion site. I have had the HIDA Scan done on me before. It is a test to see the function of the liver. It doesn't hurt, as I recall, and it doesn't even touch your body, I don't think. It basically is a machine that passes over your liver area on your right side and takes pictures. It's kind of like an x-ray. I had mine done a few years ago and so I forget all the details. But I remember that it wasn't a difficult test. Don't worry and you'll do just fine. Why are you having it done? Mine was because I had a bad liver function test with my blood test and so they wanted to see if there was any damage to my liver. I hope that you will stay with us and let us know how it turns out. All my best to are so young. Keep us posted here.

Good luck, Tonya
