Suggest treatment for gall bladder stones and constipation

I have stones and polyps in my gall bladder, I am scheduled for surgery later this week. I have developed additional and worsening lower right abdominal pain, and pain in my right hip that is radiating to my back and going down my leg a bit. I am also experiencing constipation and bloating. Could these symptoms all be from the gall bladder, or should I go see my PCP again prior to surgery? Also, any ideas on what could cause this lower right abdominal/hip pain?

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am Dr.Amit Jain (DM, Gastroenterologist).

Pain in the abdomen radiating to back, associated with constipation and bloating may be due to acute pancreatitis caused by gallbladder stone during passage into the CBD. So I will suggest you to visit your PCP for physical examination and management

I hope I have answered your query. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Wish you a good health
