Loud gurgling sounds in abdomen, had a small bowel movement and felt incomplete and still loud gurgling and now I'm panicking that something serious!
Not likely. Constant: Intestinal muscle waves of contraction, back & forth, called peristalsis, under both brain & local control, is what mixes the ~7 liters/day of water excreted from blood stream into intestines to mix with food into a thin watery soup; the motion both mixing digestive enzymes with/break-down food molecules & constantly changing intestinal wall exposure for selective absorption. Air in water gurgles. ...Read more

Might eating very small amounts throughout the day cause very few bowel movements or constipation?
Depends: As long as u include fruits, veggies & fiber it should help. Also u must remain well hydrated. The lower bowel or colon reabsorbs fluid from the toll & if ur body says hey I need water, the colon is going 2 respond by extracting more water & make u more constipated. Well hydrated can b seen in ur urine. If it is dark u need water, hydrate until almost clear. Dietitian consult would b a good idea. ...Read more

If there is any doubt that the spots were from blood, your physician can easily test a stool specimen in his office and detect blood. If the test is negative, I would rest assured. ...Read more
