Gallbladder removed 4 weeks ago due to acute cholecystitis. Have constant right side flank pain and pain under right rib cage. Is this normal healing?

Gallbladder removed 4 weeks ago due to acute cholecystitis.  Have constant right side flank pain and pain under right rib cage. Is this normal healing?

It's difficult for me to help more without more info. ...Read more
