Pelvic pain. Removed gall bladder. Negative test results. Reason for pain?

Hi, I have pain in my lower right pelvic area. It comes and goes. I had my gall bladder out since that was the only thing they could find wrong. I had stones. Hoping this would cure my ailment. The pain was gone for 3 weeks. I started back to work yesterday and the pain has returned. I have had multiple test and all my results have been negative. Do you know what the pain could be?

Thank you for the query.

It would be much easier if you could mention what tests have you had performed, otherwise, it will be very hard to help from here.
Such lower right pain can be caused several diseases including urinary tract infection, urinary tract stones (frequent urinating, burning while urinating should be present), ovarian cyst (if you are female), large intestine inflammation (Crohns disease, especially if you are about 20-30 years old, have had diarrheas, blood in stool, weight lost), colon cancer (especially if you are 50 or older, have had constipations, blood in stool), inguinal hernia (the pain aggravates while coughing).

Hope this will help.

Hi. Well if this is the same pain which you felt when you had gallbladder then obviously your pain wasnt caused by stones.
This sounds like pelvic infection . You should do pelvic ultrasound or CT scan to exclude intraabdominal infection. Also basic lab and urine tests. Any kind of muscle and bone pain must be considered too.
If you have fever or chills associated with pain then go to hospital as soon as you can.
Wish you good health.
