Have pain under rib and back . Had gall bladder removed. Cause and cure?

I had my gall bladder removed 1 year and 2 months ago and have been doing great up until 3 days ago. I have the same dull pain under the right rib and the sharp pain in the back. What can I take to help with the pain? I am exhausted and have not slept for the 3 days. My doctor prescribed me Lortab before the surgery but I have none left. Should I see about getting another prescription. The real question is why has the same exact pain returned?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the upper right side of the abdomen could be due to GERD. This can be relieved after taking omeprazole - available over the counter and a few drops of peppermint oil after every meal. Hot fomentation in the area will also help.
