most surgeons seem to have their patients on a PPI for the first 3-6 months. It sounds like yours doesn't automatically, but maybe if you let them know what's going on, they will (???)

You should contact your surgeon because I believe majority of people start a PPI after surgery for several months. I had GERD before my surgery so I just continue taking it as a precaution. They do have OTC medicine you can get in the mean time to help. Nexium, omeprazole, etc...

I’m on my 3rd day & have it so bad I can’t get nearly enough broth or Water down. I never even had heartburn before so I hope it goes away.
