Thanks for writing in.

You say that you had a surgery from internal bleeding and again two surgeries for hernia mesh repain.
Presently since December 2012 you have pain near right rib.
If CT scan is normal then nothing to worry about, if possible please share your report findings.
If there is pain in the ribs then a condition called costochondritis may be suspected. In this there is no abnormality in CT scan and this is not a serious condition.

Hope this helps.
