Pain on right side under rib cage
I have had m gall bladder removed over 7 years ago but over the past 2 years have had pain on my right side under my rib cage where my gall bladder used to be.  My stomach is very extended (feels like water retention), bloated, and have always had issues with gas (since gall bladder was removed).  Mostly constipated but switches to loose stools occasionaly.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The pain could be due to post operative adhesions, which is fibrous tissue that forms after surgery. There could be some intolerance to fatty food after gallbladder removal and this could cause the nausea. The other causes could be gastritis, peptic ulcer disease and GERD. Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this pain. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper evaluation of pain and therapy

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
