same exact thing here, my friend!! After gallbladder surgery - delayed as well for many many years. (was all in my head. ha!) same area of pain.
felt like I couldn't get a deep breath on the right side.
finally I was able to get a prescription for ATIVAN 2 mg when needed. with this dose of this medication - I can breath deeply and normally. that was a scary period. I feel for you.
do you have a specialist now - that can go in with that little laproscopy and look? sounds pretty bad since your drinking meals. and of course - none of these tests can see the scar tissue - not until there is a complete blockage.
Stay with a good doc or find one. But I do have the same pain in the upper-right quad. - and have had terrible breathing episodes. like hyperventilating,.... but I wasn't.
Ativan was the only thing that relaxed (my diaphragm I latter found out) and allowed me to breath normally. It wasn't in my head as they kept saying - and they will! - since nothing else would work..... not valiums, Serax, Xanax, I could go on and on. Only the Ativan and only the 2 mg shot or pill.
ask your doctor about it. see if he will let you take it.
I also am on methadone - but like I've mentioned before I don't recommend this to anyone. yes - my pain is gone. but physically - I am so addicted to this drug. find what works for you and a doctor that will believe you, - and then prescribe the pills every month for you.
So sorry to hear the problems you're having. we are all with you.

I'm following this threat with great interest as well. After my (delayed complicated) gall bladder surgery I developed severe upper right quadrant pain.
