Please help me understand my CT scan

I had a ct scan last week and the results said I had a few fluid-filled small bowel loops. But they're non distended. What does this mean? I called my gi doctor and of course he didn't answer.

If you aren't having any symptoms, my first thought would be that you had a drink of water before the scan and you still have some in your bowels. Hard to say though without more info.

Was it a CT with oral contrast?

I didn't have anything to drink before the scan and yeah they used that awful contrast.... I finally talked to my gi nurse and they didn't seem too concerned. I'm getting another scope down through my throat next Wednesday. (Yuck)
