Appendix, severe belching, regurgitation, pain in the stomach, acid reflux. Serious?
Thanks for the query.
The combination of acid reflux and heart burn is fairly specific for gastroesophageal reflux.
Belching or belch is a normal phenomenon and occurs more common in erect / bending forward position. If excessive, it may be part of aerophagia, or non-ulcer dyspepsia.
Endoscopy and 24 hour Ph metry should give better information regarding GERD in your case. Once diagnosis is ascertained, the medications can be adjusted so as to benefit you.
I encourage you to consult a doctor probably a gastroenterologist who can guide you through the test.
Hope my answer is adequate and helpful to you. Should you have more concerns, I am available to answer them.

In absence of any surgical notes, it is difficult to say so. But in post-surgical period, GI disturabnces may occur because of following reasons
1. Antibiotic associated C difficile infection
2. Pain killers related gastro-intestinal inflammation and ulcers
3. As a normal repair phenomenon, adhesion or fibrous tags develops inside abdomen and obstruct intestine
4. surgical mis-hap
5. The previous disease or a problem persists even after surgery.
Hope this answers your query adequately.
Wish you good health
