I am confused. Everything I have read says that gallbladder pain is on the right side. I have had a Dr. suggest that is what I am having problems with instead of my colon like I had thought. I am NOT having pain on my right side, but my LEFT. Everything else matches the gallbladder symptoms. I sometimes can't even make it through a meal without having to run to the bathroom, and most of the time I have a problem 30 mintues to an hour after I eat. The pain is right under my left rib cage, and is sometimes worse than others.
