It sounds like your esophagus got really irritated by an onslaught of acid. There could even be swelling because of it. Try sticking with soft foods for a while, and chew, chew, chew everything until it's a creamy consistency. You don't want to scratch and irritate your esophagus further.
Of course there can be strictures created by acid irritation, but that would be something that occurs over a long period of irritation. Have you ever tried Carafate suspension? Before my surgery I'd get esophagitis quite often, and Carafate (the suspension form coats the esophagus as well as the stomach) helped heal things and make them more comfortable.
Baby that esophagus until things heal. Of course, a call to the GI doc's office is always a good move when you've gotten yourself into a problem. Sorry you're having so many problems!
Hang in there,
