Doubtful: Low gallbladder ejection fraction is thought inve a disease called biliary dyskinesia, a functional problem with the gallbladder. This should not cause the fever. It may however prompt you to get your gallbladder removed surgically, which may help symptoms of pain, particularly if the medicine they gave you for the test reproduced the pain. This is done by a general surgeon. Hope this helps!
