    Hi, Vonnie,

    Sorry to learn that this is happening to you.  It may be that scar tissue is forming where your surgery occurred.  I had my gallbladder out in 2009 and sometimes get a stitch there as well.

    I did notice that I have the pain when I've been sitting a lot, so I try to get some walking in every day.  That seems to help.

    But if you are concerned, I think you should go see a gastroenterologist, a surgeon or a gp may not know what's going on.

    Best of luck to you, and let me know how you get on!

    ​I had the surgery one day after you and I am having the same issue and pain in upperquadrant  in back where the gallbladder was. Glad to see this is normal I am going to my primary doctor on 22nd so if I find any information I will post it.

    Hi I had mine out almost 3 weeks ago and my side and part of my back is hurting. 

    Did they cut you as i had the other thing that only has a few holds but that is fine. Can I please ask you. Did you have trouble eating after your GB was out. I can not eat. I hope you feel better. I would call the doctor and ask them about it.
