Default Echo unclear due to "lungs in way"

Due to all my lung problems from kyphosis curve and now having cardiac type issues needed more cardio workup. I have had many echos in the past but this time I am being told it VERY difficult to get images of my heart due to my lungs being in the way. About five years ago I measured at 90+ in curve. I am unable to have corrective back surgery as I do not tolerated pain meds. I was just wondering if anyone else had an echo where their lungs were in the way?
