Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM

Detailed Answer:
Well,this is not unusual. first option is that there are stones in common bile duct which could form even without gallbladder. secondly, this could be pain due to liver or pancreas diseases and thirdly it can be related to right lung lobe diseases. To rule all this out you need to do lung rtg, liver ultrasound and check liver and pancreatic enzymes. till that,try to have easier food,avoid fats,spices, alcohol and smoking. When pain occur,take antispasmodic and antiacid medicine. Wish you good health. Regards
