In brief: Quite normal

It is normal to experience some pain 24 days after surgery by stretching or pulling on the muscles or soft tissues inadvertently injured during surgery.
Give it more time to heal, if it hurts, don't do whatever cause the pain. Don't push your body, back off on your activities, get more rest, take it easy and expect some discomfort here and there from time to time. If pain gets worse, see your doc

In brief: Abdominal pain

There are many possible causes for this pain - depending on if this was a laparoscopic or open surgery to remove the GB.
Could you have just ovulated (mittelschmerz)?. If worsens, or if nausea/vomiting or fever develop, an in-person examination is needed.
