Dull abdominal pain with itching, pain near the belly button. History of gall bladder removal. Cause?

I am a 34 year old female and am having odd sensations in right side of abdomen . I wouldn t really say its painful, just a dull ache, enough for me to know its there and it also itches in the same spot, not all over though, just in that one spot. It almost seems like my clothing can even aggravate the itching at times. Its located about halfway between my navel and sternum but about 3-4 inches to the right. Sometimes I get a pain right beside my belly button on the right side as well. My gallbladder has already been removed about 11 years ago due to extreme pain right at sternum area, which still hurts occasionally.

Dear madam, it seems like your problems are not causes by some intraabdominal lesion, it s more likely some skin disorder such as infection or allergy so it shouldnt be related to your previous surgical procedure. Is this symptom associated with fever or redness? if did then it could be skin infection. To check your intraabdominal status u shoould do US first and CT scan if needed and see your inflammatory markers.

Wish you good health. Dr. Ivan Romich
