Biliary colic: Gallstones can remain asymptomatic or cause gallbladder infection, obstruction of pancreas and/or liver. The last two can be life-threatening. Docs recommend gallbladder removal when gallstones are diagnosed and patient is symptomatic, with bloating, belching, pain after eating, worsening with time and fatty foods. The risk/benefit analysis favors laprascopic cholecystectomy.

Pain on right: Your liver is on your right side below the ribs. Gallbladder is tucked under the liver. Right side abdominal pain, above the belly button is usually where it hurts with a bad gallbladder. The pain occurs after eating, especially fatty foods, can be severe. If pain lasts more than an hour or if you vomit get to your doctor. Ultrasound can diagnose.

A mixed bag: The usual presentation is right upper quadrant abdominal pain, often radiating to the back or shoulder. Nausea and bloating are common, and usually symptoms are made worse by eating greasy or fatty foods. Can be every day, or random and infrequent. Good luck.
