You need to see the doctor that did your heart surgery NOW. I don't mean to frighten you but you could be having some sort of problem from that. It really doesn't sound like either gall stones or ulcers, but it could be.
Yes, women have hernias. Ultra Sound test will show gall stones. At least call your doctor about this. Don't wait.

Doesn't sound like gallstones to me - they usually cause intense pain no matter what position you are in, and don't ihnterfere with breathing.

Call the doc, because you should be able to breathe without pain.
