After the operation, I always had burp and relieve the gas in stomach when the gas out. This concurrently with discomfort in upper left stomach and feels like heartburn. Can you help me identify the cause of this problem? Thanks

Answer:

You have symptoms suggestive of acid reflux that you can initiate treatment with OTC PPIs like Prilosec or Prevacid. You also may have gastroparesis that accounts for the belching. Before you do anything you should see your PCP or a Gastroenterologist.
