Maybe Gastroparesis: Gastroparesis means a slow-emptying stomach. May be mechanical (obstruction, or the stomach outlet narrowed from healing of past inflammation, treated by endoscopic dilation), post-inflammatory (due to swelling of the stomach lining from ulcers, treated with acid blockers), or neurologic (as with diabetes, treated with rx that stimulates motility). Of course, there are lots of other possibilities.
