Thanks for writing to us.
Since the pain could be due to anything from a simple muscular spasm to a condition of the kidneys, I would need a little more information which can help me help you better.
please answer the following questions:
a. Since when do you have this pain?
b. Have you ever felt it before?
c. What makes it worse? What makes it better?
d. Is the pain constant or does it increase or decrease in severity?
e. Is there any other medical/surgical condition (apart from the gall bladder removal) that you have?
f. Does the pain travel to your legs or anywhere else?
g. Is there any burning while urination or blood in the urine or do you have to visit the bathroom more often?
h. Are the bowel movements regular?
i. Is there any fever, diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting?
j. Have you taken any medication for it?
h. does it increase on moving or bending?

Once we have the answers, I would be able to provide concrete information on the steps ahead.
Awaiting your reply
