You may have Gallbladder disease giving you the symptoms that you have described. An Ultrasound of the Gallbladder is helpful to make a diagnosis. Other causes can be Duodenal and Gastric Ulcer, Gastritis , exccessive Caffeine intake etc.

Reply to V. Yetimyan   M.D.'s Post: I had my Gallbladder removed 25 years ago and I don't drink anything with caffeine. I did have an issue with IBS years ago so not sure if this is something to do with that. I have a swelling and constant pressure on my right side.. I do not believe an ulcer can just start 3 days after surgery.. If it is gastritis.. how long does that last and what is a cure for it?
Expert:  V. Yetimyan M.D. replied 8 years ago.

Hi, Most gastritis improves rapidly with treatment. Antacids or other medications like over - the- counter Tagamet HB tablet and Maalox tablet to decrease or neutralize gastric acid in the stomach will usually eliminate the symptoms and promote healing.
