Hello and welcome to HCM,
Pain around the belt line can be due to any abnormality of the underlying abdominal viscera like intestine.
The gall bladder
is placed high upper in the right upper abdomen.
Any complication arising due to gall bladder removal will be localized to its normal site site rather than in the lower abdomen.
You need to consult your doctor for clinical examination.
abdomen may be required to look for any abnormality of the visceral organs.
Besides how are your bowel movements?
A stool examination may also be required to look for any evidence of infection or any other gastrointestinal problem.
An organ enlargement, sub-acute obstruction, infection can all lead to abdominal pain
Thanks and take care
