I am a 28 year old Female. I had Gastric Bypass (RNY) about 9 months ago. I have lost 94 lbs and weigh 140 now. I feel great. For the last two weeks now I have been feeling a pain under my right rib. Mostly when I eat or drink. I noticed that it hurts more when I eat fruits (anything citrus, I guess), but still it hurts when I eat anything else as well. I do not feel nausea or vomitting. No gas or burping. The last few days I noticed the pain sort of comes and goes even when I am not eating. Also it feels sort of sore throughout the day. What might this be? Could it be related to my RNY?

You may have some inflammation of the stomach (called gastritis). Another possibility would be an ulcer.
If your pain continues I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation. You may need to see your gastroenterologist to help work this up.
