See below: Gallstones can cause mild symptoms such as upper abdominal gas bloating and pressure discomfort after eating. Sometimes there can be more pain in the right upper and middle upper abdomen with nausea and vomiting, worse after eating fatty foods. Sometimes the pain will go into the upper back. Sometimes yellow jaundice with abdominal pain could happen if the gallstones move into the bile ducts.
