You have "hyperresonant" bowel sounds.

This could be due to many causes. Are you having normal bowel movements (no constipation or diarrhea)? Are you eating at least 3 meals a day? Do you have any other medical symptoms or problems e.g. diabetes?

Usually hyperresonant bowel sounds are not indicative of anything wrong except excess gas or occasionally it is a sign of irritable bowel syndrome.
