Having an upper GI endoscopy done in the afternoon 3PM.(dysphagia?) Last meal was last night at 9PM. Only clear liquids this morning, but my stomach/throat full (slow digestion?). Is this a problem for the procedure.

In brief: Should be okay

Clear liquids evacuate from the stomach very quickly, and most GI doctors are comfortable performing endoscopy within only a few hours after such a a meal with minimal concern.
