Could be: Could be. Or it could be due to other issues. An upper GI( X-ray) should help any reflux if still there.

Symptoms could: be either recurrent acid reflux or alkaline reflux, or even something else. Treatment would depend on accurate diagnosis. You should discuss this with your gi specialist or your surgeon. But you should know that fundoplication is not always successful in relieving symptoms.
