I have been getting mid back pain after eating and sometimes on my right side on the side. Is this life threatening? Gb removed 6 MS ago. Scared.

In brief: Don't be afraid.

Pain after meals can be frightening, but having your gall bladder removed eliminates that as a cause of your pain.
I would recommend seeing a gastroenterologist for an upper endoscopy and evaluation for reflux/ulcer disease. In the mean time you should take a daily over the counter acid reducer such as Pepcid, Nexium (esomeprazole) or Prilosec.
