I created a brush stroke then I expanded it and added a gradient. When I use the gradient tool to adjust the gradient I can see it but when I let go it disappears. So I cant rotate it etc.
I tried the same on a shape with shape tool and a I made with pen tool and I dont get the same issue.
CAn someone please explain why this happens?

No its not that. As I said its not hidden when using on a regular rectangle etc. only on an expanded brush stroke. Why is this so?
Depending on the complexity of the brush stroke, the expanded form may be paths and/or compound paths within groups within groups. Try ungrouping several times and see if the annotators for all the generated paths show up.
