Gastric Emptying Scan?

I have a gastric emptying scan next thursday to look for a reason outside of Crohn's for my chronic nausea. I know the basics of the test, but just wondered if any of you have had one? And if so, what was it like/ do you have any advice? I am also going to have an ultrasound of my abdomen a bit before the scan...checking my gallbladder I believe. I will let you all know how it all goes.
I am wondering if my DD will have to have this test in the future but I'm sorry I don't know anything about it.

Please let us know how it goes.

Do you have gastritis or slow mobility of the stomach?
I had acute gastritis in the past, nothing chronic though. They will be looking for motility disorders and gastroparesis.
