LUQ: It would be unusual for uncomplicated gall stones to cause luq abdominal discomfort. Pancreatic pathology could. Were your pancreatic enzymes checked? LUQ discomfort and diarrhea do occur in IBS. I recommend collaboration between a gastroenterologist and an abdominal surgeon in your case to give you the best advice about further testing and treatment.
