Hi, Beth. I just wanted to tell you, when I got my GB removed. The pains I experienced were awful in the very pit of my stomach, I literally crawled and rolled on the floor, because I could not be in a standing postion, it would hurt so bad. I got my pains on my right side, near my ribcage, it would go through my chest, and also part of my back. I just hope they can rule out soon, what is going on with you, because I'd hate too see you in anymore pain, than you already are in. Goodluck, and feel better. Hope it works out! Take care!
