But about a week ago I started getting the same dull pain I had before gallbladder removal, ans in the past 3 or 4 days I’ve developed red rashes — first in middle of back, then spreading to right side and now in the front (right side under ribs). Basically the same areas as where pain was. I also have hiiccups on and off for past 3 days. Have an appointment with Doc next week. Could this be bile gallstones form in the bile duct from liver, backing up? leakage of bile causing infection?
