Hello! I had my Gall Bladder removed last fall, and I still experience pain and discomfort below my ribs also. My doc tells me its because of my diet (still learning what I should and should not eat) as without the gall bladder we have some difficulty digesting certain things. Definitely consult your doc though to be safe!
My sister just had her Gallbaldder removed a couple of months ago. since then she has been complaining about pain exactly where you are describing. Hers is due to the stomach not moving the bile out of the stomach in a timely manner. So there is a back up of bile. But everyone is different. good luck!!
Your spleen, liver, stomach and pancrease are all in that area too. As Laurie said, you need to see your healthcare provider to find out what it is
It could be any number of things. If the pain persists or becomes worse please get to a doctor asap.
