I read your explanation and I understand that it may be hard for you to come up with exact numbers, but I really think you should come up with a solution. 

To me, being able to see the number of results is one of the most important features of a search engine. I mainly use it to determine the popularity of products and topics and to check how many pages about me and my business are indexed, but there are plenty of other reasons why you might need to know the number of search results.
