Bilateral flank pain, why can't I get a diagnosis after months?

I had some pain in September 2016 and a diagnosed kidney stone at that time. But the pain didn't really start until January this year. I had severe flank pain on both sides and abdominal pain especially after eating. Was admitted and treated for kidney infection. A few weeks later they found out my Gallbladder was overactive and removed it.

Now I just have the flank pain on both sides. It is killing me. It never goes away (except when the hospital had me on dilaudid) They've don't CT scans, blood tests, urine tests, endoscopy, I get a Colonoscopy on Monday. But the thing I really think it has to do with my Kidneys. It's right where it hurt when I had stones before and when I had a kidney infection. But I have no diagnosis.

Please help me i am absolutely miserable all the time.

It seems pretty extreme that they just removed your gallbladder so quickly. Was your gallbladder developing stones? They could have removed the stones with an ERCP. I would suggest drinking water, cranberry supplement tabs and a mixture of Natural 100% cranberry juice(NOT "cranberry cocktail" which has added sugar) with some pineapple juice. The above mixture of juices always relieves pressure pain in my kidneys. You could also add watermelon to your diet, I've heard that helps with kidney function. IMO it sounds like you most certainly have a problem in your kidneys.
