How to interpret stress test results

Hi, new to MedHelp.  I just got my results on a patient portal from a stress test that I just had done a few days ago.  I don't see my doctor for 2 weeks, but my anxiety just makes me want to know what is going on.  Does anyone know how to interpret these results?  Thank you for any input you can give.

Findings: Patient was pharmacologically stressed with adenosine at a
     dose of 48 milligrams. No chest pain occurred during stress. A maximal
     heart rate of 108 beats per minute was achieved.

     Injections of 10 mCi and 30 mCi of technetium 99m Sestamibi were given
     for rest and stress imaging, respectively.

     SPECT images after each injection show normal size left ventricle. No
     fixed or reversible perfusion abnormalities were present. Ejection
     fraction was calculated at  72%. No wall motion abnormality.

     IMPRESSION:    No ischemic changes with pharmacologic stress. Ejection
     fraction of 72%. No wall motion abnormality.

That's a normal stress test... Good heart function without evidence of lack of blood flow
