Hi my Girlfriends left bottom part of her rib cage is swollen and she complains of pain. she has gal bladder problems i think she might have gal stones could this be the cause? And what Medication can we use temporarily for gal stones

Pain on the left rib: region is likely not related to the gall bladder b/c the gall bladder is located underneath the lower Rt. rib cage.
