Hi. I understanded your question and I will help you.
If I were your treating doctor.,I would firstly ask you to do abdominal ultrasound to rule out any serious abdominal problem. also you should know that shoulder pain and dyspepsia may persist for a period after cholecystectomy which is called post cholecystectomy syndrome.. I advise you to regulate your meals and avoid fatty meals.

Also I need to exclude any problem in the breast as breast masses and mastitis lead to enlarged axillary lymph nodes and heaviness in the arm pit.
