If it's that low it sounds more like a kidney stone rather than gallstones. Gallstones are generally felt in the stomach area, chest and mid to upper back. My gallbladder attacks were in my upper back, I felt extreme pain like nothing i've ever felt before to the point where I felt like I couldn't breathe. I've also had kidney stones and that pain is pretty darn similiar just in the "nether" region, if you get my drift, on one side. I felt in in the front, back and side on my left side. I had one large stone blocking anything from getting through.
I had a procedure called lithotripsy, it is a laser device used to shatter a large stone into smaller passable pieces. I was given a mild anesthetic of some sort, I was sleepy but still awake during the procedure and didn't feel any pain...the table moved from side to side so the laser could get to all areas..didn't take long at all and the pain was gone right away
