Thanks for posting your query.
The rumbling noise of the stomach after a meal if it is not associated with any pain is a normal finding. After we eat something it is normal for the intestinal peristalsis to increase so that the food reaches the intestines and digestion starts.
The noises that we hear are due to peristalsis only. Please do not worry as it is a normal finding.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
