    Why do i have a sharp, intense, infrequent, sporadic pain that is just below my right ribcage?  An MRI of the lowest rib last year was inconclusive.  I am a Stage III breast cancer survivor thanks to treatment at the Mayo Clinic in 2010. My current doctor, an excellent oncologist, just ordered CT scan, which was done so recently i don't have results yet. The pain has been there since the breast reconstruction surgery, which  failed.
