my low ribs and left side under ribs hurts had gallbladder out three weeks ago?

Very normal: When surgeons remove the gallbladder through little incisions (laparoscopy), the muscles of the abdomen are greatly stretched from gas inside the belly that lets us see and manipulate the gallbladder and other organs. These muscles are directly attached to the rib cage, especially the lower ribs. This can lead to soreness, especially as you become more active. It will go away. Good luck!
