Intestinal Metaplasia

Recently,I had upper endoscopy in follow-up in my remission period after receiving 6 cycles of chemo and 10 session of radiotherapy.Biopsies taken and test result revealed (Focal intestinal metaplasia in the antrum and body),but no malignancy or H-pylori noted.

My Questions is:
* Is (IM) reversible?
If yes,what course of treatment?
* Is it inevitable that IM is a precancerous condition?i.e the metaplastic cells will covert to cancerous cells?
