Doctor have asked me to eat less and more frequently. Also, ased me quit working out and swimming.

3. The smelly wind passing have subsided.

Just want to know, am I missing any possibilites? Since the pain is not subsiding, I fear what have happened to me? Can this be a case of carcinoma? what medical examinations do I need to undertake to ascertain the actual cause of this pain?
