CT Scan with Contrast; Gastric Wall Thickening
I've had abdominal pain for over 8 months.  On August 09, I had a CT scan of abdomen and pelvis with contrast that was unremarkable.  This test was repeated three days ago.  The findings say "No acute intra-abdominal disease identified.  Unchanged exam cmopared to 08/11/09"
However, in the description of the hollow organs it says :"The stomach is decompressed and demonstrates thickening of the gastric wall, likely related".  
On August 09, it said "The stomach is within normal limits".
I asked my gastro and she said, that's not significant.  It shows thickening because you were fasting.  IBS is causing your symptoms.  I left the office questioning her statement but didn't think of it until I got home.  What bothers me most now is the two words following the description LIKELY RELATED.  Likely sounds like "it should be" but no definetely.  It seems such a vague statement when I have had pain for 8 months.  
Is this thickening a serious condition that I should be concerned about?  Thank you.
