Organ, Hernia, floating ribs...???
For about 5 years, I've had this strange lump that slides laterally on the right side under my rib cage.  This only happens in awkward positions or when my abdomen is flexed.  I have to stand up and push it back in towards the middle of my body otherwise I'm in excruciating pain.  I went to the doc this morning and he said it is not a hernia.  Took some blood and urine samples, and xray and all came back normal.  he suggested it may be a floating rib, but it does not have a boney feel to it.  it's gummy.  Any thoughts?  perhaps related to my gall bladder or any abdominal muscles capable of moving like that?  I have an ultrasound tomorrow.  I'm just concerned that one of these times, I won't be able to push it back into place.
