Are there specific GI problems that would most likely cause the gurgling sounds my father has been experiencing in his stomach? The sounds are coming from his upper abdomen, so I was wondering if it most likely has something to do with his stomach or small intestine. I forgot to mention in my initial question that he had a surgery in March 2011 to repair a large ventral hernia. A mesh device was required to complete the repair. Again, though, he has not had any GI problems until 2-3 weeks ago, and he did not have any post-surgical problems.
