Dull pain on right side of rib cage, tenderness, occasional cough. Diagnosed with bronchitis. Advise?

I have a dull pain on the right front bottom of my rib cage. I was diagnosed with bronchitis and coughed very hard at times for nearly a whole month. Now , its like the very bottom bone area is tender to the touch and gives off pain every once in a while, especially with an occasional cough. Is this a liver, gall bladder, or bile duct issue? or strictly a rib cage issue?

Not likely related to the liver, gall bladder to bile's mose likely secondary to a muskuloskeletal issue i.e, the rib. Try warm compresses and anti inflammatory medications for about a week to see if this helps.
