Problems after Gallbladder surgery, Is this normal?

  1. 0
    Hello. I just delivered a baby last March. I got diagnosed with Gallstones 2 months after. Last month (September) I was diagnosed with Gallstones & Pancreatitis! After weeks in the hospital , I had my gallbladder & stones removed on October 1st. I have been doing normal activities and feeling fine for 2 weeks now, I haven't taken anything for pain since a week after the removal! Last night, I bent over & laid my daughter in her crib as soon as I stood back up I got this stabbing pain all the sudden right in the middle/right of my bottom rib cage area! It's been well over 12 hours now since the pain first started, & moving / standing up makes it worse maybe about 8/10 pain scale! If I stay still I feel completely fine, and if I walk with my back hunched over I feel fine, but I can't stand up strait, is this normal?
