Re: food still in stomach after 13 hours
I don't know what you had the endoscopy for, if you've been having digestive problems recently, maybe gastroparesis? (literally translated it means 'stomach paralysis')
It's damage to the vagus nerve that slows or even stops the muscles of the stomach from working properly. Diabetes is the most common cause, but also viral illness, autoimmune diseases, Fibromylgia, or damage to the vagus nerve from abdominal surgery. Symptoms might include nausea, feeling full after eating a tiny bit, heartburn, bloating and erratic blood glucose levels.
