Bypass here but from what I understand liquids and sliders foods (yogurt, Soups, Protein shakes) go through fast as in 15-20 minutes. Water I think goes thru immediately since I can drink 8 oz. of water in less that 5 minutes. Solid foods for me I am guessing around 45-60 minutes just based on when I feel full and when I can eat again.

I am curious if anyone has the factual info. since I am just guessing based on how I feel and what I have read.

Actually...

Our 'pouch' is made from our stomach and is all that is in use of the stomach now. Since we have no pyloric valve, everything goes straight through the pouch into the intestines starting immediately.

VSG folks have a 'sleeve' that is like our 'pouch', but VSG still has a pyloric valve which is the gatekeeper out of the sleeve/stomach. It can be quick or slow. It would probably be quicker than a normal stomach, so I'd say a few minutes.

When I had VSG, maybe 5-10 mins for liquids, 15-30 solids

With my RNY, immediately for liquids, 5-10 mins solids

I don't really know when my stomach was actually empty, honestly, but I can tell you when I no longer felt full (after feeling full):

In the first few months it was 1.5 to 2.5 hours

Around the year mark, it was around 1 to 1.5 hour.

Now (at 2 years), its about 1 hour (less if I am only eating salad greens)

P.S. I get to "full" faster, and stay full longer, when I eat denser food (in particular pork and/or shiratake noodles)
