Right side abdominal pain

I have been having pain in my right lower quadrant and intermittently in the right upper quadrant. The pain in the right lower quadrant got so bad I had to go to the ER a few night s ago. I had a CT scan that showed hypodense fluid collection in gallbladder fossa as well as prior gallbladder surgery/removal. I have never had GB surgery. They also said i had a lot of pelvic inflammation.
Not sure what to do at this point. Could they be confused by prior ventral hernia repair

Hi there!

Without a prior surgical removal, non-visualisation of the gall bladder could occur due to congenital malformations, pathologies causing structural damage or rarely exchange or report with some other patient. Well, your symptoms could be related to GI/ GU issues such as infections, inflammations etc, neuro-muscular causes etc. I would suggest considering an evaluation by an internist. After a cause is identified, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
