Re: Okay, now

As Vachilly pointed out you can have and ejection fraction (EF) that is too high, outside the normal reference range. Which means that when the gallbladder contracts that too much bile is being pumped into your digestive system, causing lots of problems.

Some GI docs, especially "old school" ones do not think that there is such a thing as an EF being too high--they are wrong. So if your GI doc won't listen, fire him/her and find another.

Treatment for a gallbladder with an elevated EF is the same as treating for low EF. Surgical removal or drugs like Ursodiol/Actigall which can temporarily dissolve stones.
