Not sure what your recovery was like and how soon you started to eat normal. Is it possible that what you thought was acid reflux was not acid reflux but something that mimicked reflux?
I had a Toupet and repair of Paraesh. Hernia done on March 3rd and during the recovery I have experienced a lot of symptoms that seemed to mimic symptoms I had before surgery. I experienced chest pain, trouble swallowing and what I thought was reflux. Now, as more time passes, I can see that it was simply a matter of given it time. It takes a while for the swelling from the surgery to subside and swallowing to get back to normal. Over the last few days, the chest pain has subsided, I am beginning to swallow a lot more normally, and what I thought might be reflux is beginning to subside. Assuming this progress continues, it would seem that in a few or several weeks these symptoms will completely disappear.
I was on PPIs before surgery and stopped them shortly after surgery.
