I had my gallbladder removed 3 years ago, but now I have this burning under my rib cage on the right side. IT HURTS REALLY BAD! Does anyone else have this problem? And if so, what is the solution? I went to the ER and my family doctor for this. They did x-rays (why? I didn't break a bone) and a cat scan. Nothing was found. I know that I am in pain (severe, after I am lying down for a couple of hours. it wakes me up) but I don't know how to make them believe me. CAN ANYONE OUT THERE HELP ME?
