Hi all! I have had this wierd pain located on my right side just under my ribs. I had this pain before my surgery, and thought I was too fat and the fat was causing my ribs to stretch and cause rib pain. I remember having the pain when I had my gall bladder untrasound and it hurt when she moved the wand over my rib area. I recently mentioned it to the nurse practitioner at my surgeon's office and she sent me for a another gall bladder untrasound......nothing abnormal from that untrasound. The pain is intermittent. It is not there all the time, but sometimes, the pain is terrible and goes from just under my rib on the right hand side and jets up over my shoulder - sometimes emminating to my back shoulder area. I really don't think it is gas, and I don't think it is gall stones wither - I have heard they are excruciating. That said, i almost went to the ER the other day because the pain wouldn't let up. Any help is appreciated! Oh. My surgery was 9/2/09.
