I got a hida scan of my gallbladder done which reported anef of 12%. The abd ultrasound reported no gallstones. Is the chronic burping and pressure (poking) under my right rib cage caused by the ef?
Probably yes: A normal gallbladder ejection fraction on a hida scan should be more than 40%. At 12%, this means that you have a dyskinesia of your gallbladder which can give the type of symptoms you are reporting.
