Thickening Walls

Hey everyone! I was in the ER yesterday and I was told that I have thickening of the distal antrum and duodenum walls. I'm not to sure what that means and what can they do for it. I have been having trouble eating and drinking cause it hurts my stomach.

Could mean that you have systemic sclerosis.  I suggest you see your doctor to advise him of your tests and results and get further studies to determine what is causing this thickening.
