Had gall bladder removed previously. Having pain behind left breast at the back. Usually after meal. What could this be?

I have pain in my upper left side, behind left breast, in back around colon area. I belch a lot and pain usually comes after a meal. I have had all cardiology workup so the problem is not heart related. I had gallbladder removal about 11 years ago. I take nexium for acid reflux.Any suggestions as to what this may be?

Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
most common cases are stomach disorders such as gastritis or gerd but it may indicate pancreatic disorder as well so you need to rule this out too. So i suggest to do gastrosocpy and ct scan of abdomen first and then you can plan further tests if necessary.till that try to change your diatary habits first and see will it help.
Wish you good health. Regards.
