pancreas tail

My ultrasound shows a pancreas tail obscured by bowel gas,  What does it mean is it something to worry?

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  This was probably just a comment to say that the pancreas tail couldn't be completely seen because you had gas in your bowels that was making it difficult to see the pancreas.  This finding probably doesn't mean much.  Do you pass a lot of gas or have abdominal pain/bloating?
