As I said there is nothing worrisome.

What do you think about my previous response?

Is there any specific reason, you feel that these symptoms are due to stomach cancer?

Re-Read Please and Resend your Previous Response ......I think I didn't understand it ...... Please send it again for the above Question .....Thank You ...
Oncologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 1 month ago

There are two things which can cause your symptoms;

Acid reflux.

Succussion splash; stomach contents would cause noise on pressing and so do the intestine.

These symptoms do not point to cancer.

These are physiological phenomenon.

Well ..... To your 2nd Question being ;;; ( Is there any specific reason, you feel that these symptoms are due to stomach cancer? )NOW -- After I eat I get scared that I am going to get Stomach Pains ..... And Guess what .... I do ..... I get Noises .....
I think the Noises are Louder than anybody else's Stomach Noises ......And during One part of Any Day ..... All of a Sudden I will get a WEIRD Feeling that I cannot describe .... Its just WEIRD through my Body and my Toes and along with my Toes .... Sometime my fingers will tickle .... Not Itch ... Not Tingle .... But Tickle ... for about 20 - 30 Minutes .....It Scares Me .....I am just being Honest with you ......Mike
Oncologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 1 month ago

You may get an upper GI endoscopy and abdominal CT scan to see the stomach movements, anatomy and physiology again.

Tickling of fingers can be due to electrolyte imbalance. Get the following done;

Serum calcium

Serum magnesium

Parathyroid hormone assay.

Oncologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 1 month ago

Sure, your hurting ribs can affect the stomach.

Drink coconut water, pedialyte and Gatorade.

Oncologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 1 month ago

The main issue here is anxiety.

Learning relaxation techniques would help.

Golf is good but group sports may still be better.
