xiphoid distended & shoulder pain

Dear Doctor...I am 502yr old female that has had a complete gadtrectomy 8 months ago due to stomach cancer, and gall bladder removed 2 months ago. Since having lost 90lbs in 8 months, I suffer from diploid pain. The diploid is distended beyond my rib cage, and I get left shoulder pain that seems to correspond with the diploid pain. Could this be simply has pressure from the GI tract? I also have Barrets Esophagus; could there be a correlation, or could something else be going on? Do you feel the distended diploid has always been there and only became noticable after the weight loss, or is it possible that it was injured during the total gastrectomy surgery when the doctors attached my small intestine to my esphogus? The pain in my left shoulder has been constant for the last 4 days. Thank you in advance for your reply.
