Could be several: Gallstones can cause a sudden sharp pain in the right upper part of abdomen near ribs, worse after fatty meals. H pylori causes irritations like stomach ulcers or reflux, usually a burning pain in the center or upper left, could be bloating. The antibiotics used to treat h pylori can also cause GI upset if you are on them. If pain or discomfort is getting worse, call the doc or follow up.

Treat and wait: I would recommend you and your doctor treat your h pylori infection. During so, i'd eat a lower fat diet. Once the stomach inflammation has resolved, if your symptoms persist, then consider cholecystectomy. Gallbladder symptoms, classically, are fatty food intolerance, with bloating , right upper quadrant and back pain, and nausea. Good luck.
