Right upper quadrant pain post cholecystectomy

I had an emergency cholecystectomy in Feb '10.  I was diagnosed with a "porcelain gallbladder".  Since the surgery I have had recurrent pain in the right upper quadrant with nausea and diarrhea.  My liver enzymes (alt & ast) keep fluctuating, though not very high (below 100).  I recently had an endoscopy which showed gastritis in the entire stomach.  Biopsies were taken and h pylori was ruled out.  Pancreatic enzymes were reported to be normal.  I was misdiagnosed with Addison's disease 9 yrs. prior.  I can tell you my symptoms appeared after I was taken of the prednisone therapy and have gradually gotten worse.  I also had a l5-s1 fusion in June and was given prednisone for inflammation.  Stomach issues cleared up for a short time.  Any suggestions?
