What causes recurring right sided chest pain in an elderly person?
Hello and thank you for submitting your question.
The symptoms you describe are very nonspecific and require further investigation with a physical examination by a physician in person. There are several causes which may bring about this type of pain.
It could be related to musculoskeletal issue. It might also represent a defect in the soft tissue of the abdominal wall.
It may also be biliary in nature, though these symptoms often occurs in association with eating. Given your history of relatively remote left-sided surgery, acute complications related to the surgeries are less likely.
Definitive diagnosis is essentially impossible without a proper physical examination and possibly adjunct testing. Please see your physician at your earliest convenience, especially to rule out more concerning causes such as pulmonary or cardiac in nature.
