    I'd call up there and tell the receptionist you failed to tell the Dr important information. Maybe he'll take another look at your X-Rays.

    Hi Max.

    It sounds like a gastric problem called gastroparesis.

    It's also known as lazy stomach because the stomach doesn't digest the eaten food properly or does it very, very slowly.

    Within 90 minutes, over half of a meal should be digested and in the small intestine.

    If you hadn't eaten and your stomach did have food in it, then it wasn't digested.

    As CajunRicky said, you should tell your doctor or receptionist so that the x-rays can be re-checked.

    If it is undigested food, your doctor will probably send you for an endoscopy.
