A 35-year-old member asked:

If i have pain in my right side but sometimes to the lower left, is it possible the left pain is a stone in my liver not gallbladder?

No: Although it is possible to form stones in the bile ducts of your liver, this is very very rare.

Don't believe so: Llq pain in my experience is not caused by a stone in your liver nor your gall bladder. See a surgeon and have a work up.

Highly unusual: Have never seen left lower quadrant abdominal pain with cholelithiasis.
