In brief: Likely no

Usually the two conditions you mentioned are from different reasons.
Gastroparesis occurs in those with longstanding diabetics and is a slowed and irregular motility problem of the gut. Atelectasis is a small area of lung that is not inflated fully, and can occur from not taking deep breaths after surgery and from other causes. They don't usually occur at the same time.
