28 yr. old Open Heart Surgery

On Aug.17 2004, I had open heart surgery to remove a tumor from inside my heart. The surgery of course required me to have 2 chest tubes put in, one was underneath my right breast and the other was inbetween my ribs, where it seperates the 2 sides of them. Or to better describe, about 5-6 inches above my belly button. Anyway, Recently, I have been have soreness in that area, and also sometimes it will hurt underneath my left rib cage, sometimes it will feel like a burning sensation, or like a cramp that you have if you eat and then go walking right away. Everyone that I talk to about it says that it's probably from the surgery and that my body has been through a lot. A womenfrom work, her husband had open heart surgery and she said that he had stomach problems after also. If anyone can give me some knowledge or any other input, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
