Had appendix removal. Stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, pain between shoulder blades. Ultrasound normal. Link between gall bladder and appendix?

I just had my appendix out on oct 2, since then have been experiencing bouts of severe stomach pain with diarrhea nausea and now pain between my shoulder blades and under my right breast. The did an ultrasound the week after my surgery which showed nothing but these symptoms seem to point to gallbladder . I am wondering what the link is between gallbladder and appendix.

General Surgeon 's  Response
the main link between gallbladder and appendix is that both lie in the same intraperitoneal plane of the body and both are on the right side of the abdomen.The pain which you are experiencing now may be related to some collection at the operated site-leading to diarrhea,and nausea.However,a possibility of acalculous cholecystitis(inflammed gall bladder without stones) cannot be ruled out.Hence i would insist upon you to have a check up from the operating surgeon
get well soon,good luck.
