No: There is clotting along any surgical site. It is limited to the area of cautery, ligation, etc. I suspect the issue is bleeding into the abdominal cavity and not the "stomach" .

Since it is possible to have an infection and cancer at the same time the fact that a small amount of bacteria was found does not rule out cancer.

I had a blood test done a while ago and i had a normal platelet count but a low mpv (6.3) and the only symptom i have is foamy urine. What could this ?
Test results: I doubt there is a connection between low platelet volume and your foamy urine. Did they check your urine itself? Or check your kidney function? Do you feel well? Any test can give falsely abnormal results, or results that are not in the normal range, but it doesn't really matter as long as you feel well. If you are well, don't worry. If worried, as to repeat the test, check the urine and kidneys. ...Read more
