Customer Question

I just experienced what I would call like the sensation of a tightened rubber band snapping in my upper left abdominal area. It was not painful but I definitely felt and actually heard it. My left kidney was removed 5 years ago. Could this possibly be scar tissue related or something else? Also am having diarrhea with it.
