You're having a lot of the issues I was having. Actually...it sounds like you might have similar health problems to me too ;) I've been tested for everything you were tested for and so far the only diagnosis is GERD and excessive bile in the entire GI tract. My gallbladder was removed in Feb 2012 after I had a HIDA scan and they found my gallbladder working at 3% also. Having the gallbladder out only levitated some of my pain for a few months though, then I started having more complications. I'm convinced that some of the complications (such as EXTREME food sensitivity) are because of my gallbladder removing. I almost wish I hadn't had it taken out.
Try doing small movement exercises if you can. Even though the GB surgery is laparoscopic (I had 2 incisions) they have to cut through a lot of tissue and muscle to remove the Gall Bladder, especially if it is swollen and angry. This can cause a LOT of tightness from the bellybutton towards the right, and above where your gallbladder was also, because that's the path they use to pull the GB out. Tiny, frequent exercises such as getting up and walking around the house, then SLOWLY bending a little to the right, then left, then down can help keep your muscles loose as they mend. I didn't move around enough after my surgery and my muscles healed very tight, which caused discomfort for about a month until I was able to stretch them enough for normal movement.
Walking will help with the pain in the upper right also. It sounds like you probably DO have some surgery gas still in your body and that hurts if you can't get rid of it. The more you walk, the more your body with loosen, and the better you'll feel.
Vomiting could also have messed something up as you said. I vomited twice on the second day after my surgery, and I had a fever day 1, 2, and 3 but not after that, so that is worrisome.
Sorry to hear that you're going through so much. Hugs, it will get better soon! I was feeling much better after about two weeks.
