Hello, This pain may not be attributed to post cholecystectomy status, pain in the ribs?? In the middle or left or right side?? If it is right side of the chest , then let her get an Ecg done if normal then generally pain after spicy food could be gastric related issue , like acid reflux , gastritis or esophagitis or Duodenitis, she should be consulting a Gastroenterologist and get an USG Abdomen with an upper GI endoscopy to rule out the same and can be treated . Hope I could help you. Thank you.
