Can gallstones cause pain around my bellybutton?

Posted , 8 users are following.

I've been diagnosed with Gallstones. I'm not in serious pain, but i do have a discomfort in my right abdomen that comes and goes.

For the past 2 days I've noticed that my abdomen is sore to the touch in one spot about 2 inches above my bellybutton and 1 inch to the right.

I've assumed that gallbladder pain should be higher near my right rib cage. Does this sound related to my gallstones? I don't really want to remove the gallbladder if that isn't what is causing my discomfort.

Thanks!

    My pain was my whole right side. I would suggest considering removal as the gallbladder will not heal itself and things will only eventually get worse. I am 3 weeks post op and so glad that pesky little organ is gone. I am feeling better each day. i did not have stones but an overactive gallbladder with polyps. Good luck to you!

    I have removed my gall bladder 9 months ago.

    I had symptoms like

    right hand pain and shoulder pain.

    and abdominal pain.

    and unable to bloat.

    Thanks!
