    Maybe your bile duct blocked. Sometimes Stones are like sand mine were and didn't show up as falling part These can get stuck in your uretha and as you keep passing these sand like grains stones often as breaking up can cause back pain. Did they check your kidneys for stones. Also have you had any urine infections.

    Are you sure not a bowel problem or colon problem as large bowel colon is positioned under your ribs diaphram.You can get diarrhoea from derverticulad desease cramps stomach pains as well as from your gallbladder plus vomiting. The pain mirrors that.as well can be confused with gallbladder symptoms!!

    mine started with severe abdominal pain central, upper and upper right. chest pain and occassional back pain which varied from upper and lower, nausea and vomiting. sometimes would get a dull ache which felt like it was in my rib area. after several trips to the hospital i had a scan showed gallstones and sludge in the gall bladder. however since having it removed end of april 2014 i am still suffering with flare ups and getting the run around from doctors who just keep putting me on my medication rather than carrying out proper investigations so frustrating. not sure if any of this info is any help

      Did they tell you that use 3 clips,ti seal off where your gall bladder use to be? Did they tell you does a. don'ts before left hospital like don't drive so many weeks. Don't lift other? You don't say. If you had keyhole procedure? however if this the case you should been told They observations treating keyhole as just the norm now as less time recovering.but it's still a major op. Plus you tend to forget things your doing as NO BIG SCAR AS A CONSTANT REMINDER!! You may have also forgotten you have internal stitches. So if your not right make a fuss and ask for a second opinion as still unwell. ANDVYOU SHOULD NOT BE LIKE THIS
