HIDA scan showed that gallbladder wasn't emptying. Why ?

I had a HIDA scan today. (I got it since I have been sick for 8 months. Usually after eating, nausea , diarrhea , pain under my right rib that can radiate to my back.) It took 2 and a half hours (orginally they said it would take about an hour to an hour and a half) At the end the tech told me my gallbladder wasn t emptying... basically saying that meant something was wrong. I asked if she knew the ejection fraction . She said she would get it for me. She came back and said I guess it is ok, it came back 58, everything about 35 is normal What does this mean??? Is there still something wrong? Why wasn t my gallbladder emptying?

get one fasting ultrasound of abdomen to rule out gall bladder stones, any changes in the wall thickness, or polyps in the gall bladder.
