In brief: Hernia

It sounds like a hernia to me.
Get an appointment to see the surgeon who performed your cholecystectomy or another general surgeon. The best course of action with hernias is often repair.

In brief: Sounds like

an incisional hernia, which is intermittently incarcerating.
Get to a surgeon asap, before incarceration progresses to strangulation.
