Question:
my daughter is 13 years old and is having gallbadder pain but the gallbadder test show normal she has been running a fever up to a 104. and nobody knows what is wrong with her so could you please help us thank you.

Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry. A gallbladder problem in a 13 year old causing a fever of 104 is statistically quite unlikely. If the child has pain under the right ribcage and / or on the right side of the abdomen, the gallbladder is not a common cause of this in this age group. Unfortunately there is insufficient information in the question to be able to say other that - if your child has abdominal pain and a fever it is mandatory to take her to see a doctor and (possibly, depending on the results of history of this illness, physical examination, and basic blood tests) to see a surgeon after that. This should be done today, as soon as possible.
