In brief: Sphincter oddi

May just be functional but disorders such as sphincter of oddi dysfunction or even recurrent acute pancreatitis vs chronic, should be considered.

In brief: Liver sludge

The problem that caused gall stones is still there.
Liver produces the bile which needs b6 as pyridoxal 5 phosphate and phosphatidyl choline. Once the bile flow normalizes pain will stop.

In brief: Get re-evaluated

If your gallbladder was removed years ago, but you still get the same pain, there are 2 possibilities: sometimes a gallstone gets left behind in a duct outside of the gallbladder, or else the pain was from something other than the gallbladder all along (liver, pancreas, ulcer, gastritis, irritable bowel, etc.
). A family doctor or internist can ask questions, examine you and run tests to find out.
