Any GPS/nurses about for advice ?

Another post from me (sorry) . But you guys are so helpful.
I have recently been diagnosed with gallstones. I am managing to keep the pain at bay with careful diet.
But am left with lots of wind which is hard to pass. Constipated. Lower abdominal discomfort and feeling of being bloated . Is this normal with gallstones?
I have had chest X-ray, upper abdominal ultrasound , FOB bowel test , lots of blood tests . They found the gallstones , low B12, Vit D , Ferritin and Calcium .
I take 10mg of omeprezole a day for reflux.
I had an endoscopy last year showing gastritis.
I sometimes in last few get a shooting pain around right ovary but am due on.
And pain in lower back around hip on left side .
Should I be asking my GP for a colonoscopy or pelvis scan or can the gallstones cause this ?
