Your Doc will probably get back to you with the results.  It's kind of odd that he couldn't get a reading.  Usually, if your ejection fraction is 35% or under, your gallbladder isn't working the way it should be.  I'm not a Doctor but I've learned through my own.  

Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!

All the best,

Sam

I had the same problem when I went for my HIDA scan but after awhile my gallbladder showed up on the screen. Did they inject you with morphine to force the contents into the gallbladder? I remember the tech told me if there is a blockage of some kind they won't get a reading. He said then the doctor has to sometimes do other tests to find out where the blockage is exactly if that happens. Mine ended up showing up after awhile and resulted in a 17% ejection fraction. I am 6 days post op from having mine removed. There are other tests your doctor can do to find out why your gb was not showing up.
Good luck!
