Pain after gallbladder surgery?

does anyone else have it still? I had my surgery 11 months ago and I'm in worse pain than I was, I've been on multiple medications and had multiple tests. I eat a well balanced diet and I'm 17.

    Despite the gallbladder being removed, that will not take away the risk of getting gallstones again, because the gallstones can be formed to the bileducts. Or, if only the stones were removed (which is not even a good choice of treatment!), there might be some new ones already, or, some remnants left from the previous gallstone operation. Please go see a doctor in order to have an abdominal ultrasound and/or abdominal MRI (in some cases small stones/stone remnants cannot be detected by ultrasound).
