Abdominal pain right side under ribs, spreading to back, hip and leg. Lab shows ALT high, gallbladder was removed last year. Should I be concerned?

See your doctor.: We don't have enough detail here to guess as to what's wrong with you, but knowing that you're having pain and that your ALT is high indicates that you need more work up. I would go back to your doctor for that. You may need a referral to a gastroenterologist for a liver evaluation. Do not ignore it. Good luck.

Doctor can evaluate: Upper abdominal pain can be from "acid" pains, such as a stomach ulcer, just gastritis with no ulcer, or reflux (heartburn). An infection with H. pylori bacteria can lead to stomach ulcer pains (an acid blocker can help). One needs more evaluation by her primary care doctor. Heart disease, rib and cartilage problems, pancreatitis, gallstones, or various cancers can cause upper abdominal pain.

I'm sixteen years old and I have had upper abdominal pain and chest pain for the last three or more weeks. I am very scared.

Relax but evaluate: At your age this is more likely to be irritation of your swallowing tube than anything serious. It can/does hurt & many people immediately thing it is heart related. Avoid acidic foods/carbonated drinks & caffeine. Don't eat or drink within an hour of laying down. Go in and be evaluated.
