I had my gallbladder removed this past Thursday. Everything is fine except I have developed a very sharp pain on my right side. On my back about where the last rib is. It was kind of there all along, but has gotten more sharp over the last couple of days. Sharp breaths hurt. Burping, coughing, sneezing really hurts. Any suggestions on what it could be, or what I should do?

    If you are in the UK get the doctor to give you

    an home visit to check you over . You could also ring 111 for advice,

    they usually send someone out to you .

      Good idea Linda that's what I did 111 they are so good but needed going to hospital spent  3 more nites .Somebody told me you are quiet knowledgeable in the gall bladder area but correct me if I'm wrong please ! I have had stone out of my bile duct ended up in hospital 7 days later with cholangitis back home again now ! Now have very loose motions I have read it could be because now they have made the bile duct wider the bile drips more and gives you the loose motions ? All this been going on since last November wrongly diagnosed at the hospital. I'm in England .💐

    I too have had gb surgery, if it was a keyhole surgery...they strap you onto the table and add gas to your belly, they also tilt the table...I had bruises & pain from the straps, it could be inflammation of cartlidge between the ribs...it can be very painful, you might want to phone the Dr ask what they think...it may clear up if you can take or apply anti-inflammatory for it, however if it goes longer than a couple days GO IN...wish I could be more helpful...BEST WISHES💟
