What could cause pain to wrap around the right side of your body from abdomen around side to back & in the chest waiting to have gallbladder removed?

Biliary pain: Your description of your pain could be from your gallstones/biliary colic but also from other causes that should be mentioned to your medical team. Stones can block your pancreatic duct too and cause significant pain as can ulcers and right sided colon constipation.
