In brief: Nonspecific

Not sure about the pain with bowel movement - no location mentioned.
Back pain is very common after operations with general anesthesia due to lying flat on the operating table. Gallbladder removal typically is a short operation, but any preexisting back problem could be unmasked. Check with your surgeon and/or primary care provider for a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps!
