2 more tests, but still feeling great (for now)!

I saw a gastroenterologist yesterday via telemed. We're going to test me again for SIBO to make sure that it's cleared and they're getting preauth for a HIDA scan. The HIDA scan will check the function of my biliary system: liver, gallbladder, etc. It will pick up on things that a CT scan won't show, like if my gallbladder is underactive, overactive, inactive, etc. They inject me with a radioactive tracer, then use a gamma camera to track the flow of the tracer from my liver into my gallbladder and then to my small intestine. I REALLY hope it shows something, even though I'm feeling so much better! I feel like these tests would have been better to do when I was so sick...
BUT, it's amazing to eat regular food again and to have energy! I worked yesterday (from home), worked out, and made beef stew from scratch. I'll enjoy it while it lasts!
