If U R thin, U may--: -B feeling the air in the colon at the splenic flexure, this going away with touch is the air actually being scooted out of the way by Ur hand. What U R feeling is stool & air as the peristaltic action of the colon. @ times it may gurgle or similar noise as it turns the corner.
