In brief: ? retained stone

There are a number of tests, ultrasound, mrcp that you could have to rule out a retained or new primary gallstone in your bile ducts.
If these are clear an ERCP may help. Ulcers, gastritis, constipation can also cause this type of pain. Pulled muscles, neuromas can cause pain. see your surgeon to evaluate
