What can cause muscle spasms right under right side rib cage?

I had lung surgery almost 3 years ago to remove nodules. They were benign. Ever since I get weird spasms right under the rib cage on the right side. My pulmonologist dismisses it as 'you'll always know your chest was opened'.
It really feels like something is wrong, not just post chest surgery pain. The area has become tender to touch recently and the spasms are more frequent.
