In brief: No

Gurgling is good! we drs ike to hear lots of sounds in the gut with our stethoscopes, it means your gut is "peristlsbowel souning".
But if you are distended, in pain and can't have bowel movements, that is when we worry about obstruction. Loud gurgling usually just means tummy wants food. However, if it's "spastic and you have pain, tend to be anxious you may have irritable bowel. See your dr.
