I had nissen fundoplication surgery one month ago. The procedure seem to have stopped the GERD as I do not have acid reflux but I have other issues:
-excess saliva
-A very bad taste in my mouth
-Food seems to be moving slowly and painfully thru my system after anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours after eating.
-Sometimes a feeling that food is stuck in the bottom of my throat

Can you advise

I had gone on a soft diet but am thinking about going back to all liquid diet

Thanks for writing in

Has this started immediately after you started regular meals or was it normal for some time and gradually it has worsened ?

Till some conclusive diagnosis is arrived at you may plan shifting to a liquid diet

Also seek an appointment with your operating surgeon
