Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
Esophgaus is extremly rarely damaged since the operative field is far away from esophagus. It can be postcholecystctomy syndrome or more likely stomach issue such as gastritis, gerd,hiatal should be evaluated by gastroscopyand then treatment can be started
Wish you good health. Regards
