agree  Emma Goldsmith: Yep, and you've even added a note on bowel sounds as a Christmas bonus:)
9 mins
  -> Thank you, Emma! :)

neutral  Phoebe Anne: could it be as...no abdominal guarding?
1 hr
  -> Sure! That's usually omitted—it is the abdominal examination after all—but that depends greatly on context. "Soft, nontender, no rebound or guarding" etc. is the usual collocation when everything is normal.

agree  Muriel Vasconcellos
