Pain in the liver after eating. gall bladder removed in the past. CT scan shows arterial blush in the hepatic lobe. Worried

I am a 58 year old female. My gallbladder was removed like 25 years ago. Now my liver hurts every time I eat, I belch after eating and it is very painful at times to even breathe. Hurts right under the right rib cage and to the back. In January 2010, on a CT of the chest it also revealed a 1.6 x 1.3 centimeter arterial blush in the dome of the right hepatic lobe. I was told to have a 3 phase CT of the liver or dedicated MRI of the liver and never did. The pain sometimes is almost unbearable. Should I be concerned?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Belching after eating and pain is due to acid peptic disease.Please take Rabeprazole and domperidone capsule daily.
1.6 x 1.3 cm lesion in the right lobe of the liver can be Haemangioma.It is the commonest benign tumour of the liver.
Instead of CT or MRI,go for Ultrasound abdomen.If the lesion is suspicious go for CT/MRI.
If there is unbearable pain,take anti inflammatory drug.
If you come back with Ultrasound abdomen report,i can clarify further.
Wish you good health
