Brief Answer:
try pantoprazole with levosulpiride

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

Due to presence of tube in stomach and also while removing it there are chances of erosion of lining of food pipe and stomach.

I suggest you to take pantoprazole with levosulpiride combination. Pantoprazole is stronger acid suppressor and helps in healing of erosion and levosulpiride helps in reducing burping and healing of food pipe.

These are prescription drugs. You need to consult your operated doctor once again. Don't worry it will heal but will take time.

Avoid tea , coffee and spicy foods till it heals.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.
