I spoke to the doctor's nurse today and she told me that it's not possible for food like mint to remain in the stomach more than a few hours. Ok, that means I'm delusional (not contesting that). (I also corrected dysphagia, which I also have, with gastroparesis, don't know what I was thinking).

Any opinions on how long food can stay in the stomach (aside from a bezoar). I know if food remains in the stomach for at least 12 hours it can indicate gastroparesis.
