Pain under xiphoid process

I have had pain that starts under my xiphoid process for about 7 months.  Sometimes it radiates to the left and right sides right behind my lower rib.  I have had an MRI/X ray and had an upper gastric endoscopy done and everything was clear.  I have also been put on lansoprazole, omeprazole, diclofenac, and gabapentin at different times and nothing has helped.  Now my doctor has no clue what it is and wants to do exploratory surgery.  Any ideas?
