This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
Right sided chest pain can be because of lit of caused.
The major cause being Costochondritis. It is just inflammation of joint between bone & cartilage of chest. You can take ibuprofen for it.
I also understand that you have a aortic graft and I hope that you are fine on that.
Still I will advice you to at least do a ECG to rule out any other abnormality.
Thanks & take care
