Pretty Good: Biliary dyskinesia is the most likely cause of your problem. See a surgeon to review all of your findings.
Thoracic Surgery 20 years experience
Recommended: General consensus is ejection fraction less then 35-40% is abnormal. Your description is consistent with biliary dyskinesia. The recommended treatment is gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy). You should discuss this with your family physician, get referral to skilled surgeon for consultation.
