    My friend invites me to a party after she finishes dinner with her family. I say:

    My friend invites me to a party after she finishes dinner with her family.

    I say:

    Maybe you won't want to do anything after a full stomach. Let's touch base after dinner.

    VS

    Maybe you won't want to do anything with a full stomach. Let touch base after dinner.

    Are both correct here?

    The expression you're looking for is "on a full stomach."

    If you want to use "after", you would have to say something like "You might not want to do anything after eating/you've eaten such a huge meal."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
