In brief: See your surgeon

Could be a retained common bile duct stone, sphincter of oddi dysfunction, or a hernia from one of the laparoscopic port sites.
Could also be that the pain was never caused by the gallstones in the first place, and it is due to something like costochondritis, peptic ulcer disease, or abdominal wall muscle spasms. Your surgeon should at least be able to check for complications after operation.
