    I've been having this pain under my left rib cage for a few months now. It mostly hurts after I eat, but it has become more intense lately. I also get a little knot there in that area that mostly pops up after I have eaten. I was diagnosed with GERD and a hiatal hernia a few years ag, and I have had a full hysterectomy. I have been steadily gaining weight since then, about 40 pounds in the past two years, without any change in my eating habits.  Does anyone know what could be causing this pain?
