It hurts sooo bad. I got my ghalbladder removed in dec 2008 not sure if its related, but what coudl it be?

Sounds pretty typical for either costochondritis or, more likely, costochondrial dislocation. Since physical maneuvers elicit the pain I would think it highly unlikely that it relates to your gallbladder issue. This can usually only be diagnosed with a careful physical examination. Frequently, the patient will hear or feel a "pop" when the pain starts.
