No. Gum isn't really run through the entire digestion process, it's flushed out. It doesn't stay in your stomach longer than anything else should. (about a day)

I'm constantly amazed at how many people seem to believe that gum really stays in your stomach for years.

I also thought gums stayed inside your body for years if you swallow it.. hehe... but I was still 10 at that time.
