      Too bad your doctor didn't give you some insight to what the pain was from. If he was not concerned it must be something they see often. If you do not feel comfortable with his information you could go to urgent care or ER. After my surgery like I said I had no pain. Listen to your instincts if you have insurance that will cover ER or Urgent Care go in.

      I had my gallbladder out 2 years ago. I had no problems after surgery. Felt great. And then after a month or so I started having bathroom issues. As in needing to sprint bathrooms . Not fun.

      Hope you feel better soon. You could also try calling the Ask-A-Nurse number. Although I think if you say you're in pain they will tell you to go to the ER. Hope everything turns out okay. Have a good day
