during surgery and after surgeries the medicines taken can damage the mucosa of the stomach and gi tract causing hyperacidity and coming up of acid in throat which is called reflux oesophagitis
so you need to add ppi in emty stomach forlong time and liquid antacids tds
may take for 2- months till the mucosa is regenerated and take non spicy and non fatty diets and warm water to clear acid
