Different things: It is possible that the pain was due to something else. I am sure that there was a good indication for cholecystectomy, but it may be that the cause of the pain was unrelated to your gallstones.
I would have another talk with the surgeon and see if you guys coukd work together to ferret out the cause of the pain.
