Back ache associated with gall bladder attack

Patient

Q: On August 1 I had a gall bladder attack that showed as a sudden onset back ache. On August 24 I had my gall bladder removed and continue to have a back ache. This back ache is mostly in the middle of my back from one side to the other but sometimes also moves up my back between my shoulder blades. I saw my regular MD who prescribed Celebrex. This relieved the neck and shoulder burning, but the middle of my back still hurts. I have gone to the chiropractor twice and this seems to help, but I still have the back ache. It does not seem to be as bad as it was, but still hurts.
