A lot of things

Pain in this area can be caused by many things. You will need to see your doctor. He/She will take a good history of your pain, ie its location, is it constant or intermittent, the quality of the pain (i.e sharp, dull, aching, burning etc) whether it is affected by change of position or not, whether it has any relationship to eating or not and many other questions. Then a physical exam and tests.

Low Fat Diet

Interesting Fact

Fat is not as much as a problem as are calories. Watch total calories rather than fat.

Can a hiatal hernia causes lung pain and pain below the breast bone?

Typically no, but...

A truly sizable hiatal hernia may be contributory to your symptoms. Is it fixed, sliding, para-esophageal? Before you consider surgery for the hiatal hernia and its manifestations of GERD, have you tried and failed appropriately-dosed acid blocker agents and anti-reflux diet modification? Has a pH study and manometry been considered? Does your stomach empty normally?

See a doctor

Could be irritation or ulcer formation in the remaining gastric pouch. Could be gallstones if her gallbladder is still present. Could be scarring with partial intestinal blockage. Would need to have an examination with her doctor.

Reflux GERD

Sounds like she is having a problem with her esophagus which may be GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease). She should try taking Prilosec (over the counter) twice a day for two weeks straight and see if there is any improvement. If there is, she should continue taking it. She may also want to see a gastroenterologist.

Considering history of Hyperthyroid, you are going to want her heart to be checked out too. If it is her stomach, risk is not the same if it is her heart. Nothing lost to be sure.
