Ask for a CT scan (computerized tomography), with and without contrast, a 64 slice scan.

Ask for a CA-19-9 blood test.

Also just because you don't have gall stones it doesn't mean that your gall bladder is functioning properly. Ask for a HIDA scan with CKK. This tests takes a while and mimics a fatty meal. If your gall bladder is functioning below normal that can cause pain and GI symptoms.
