In brief: Acid reflux

Sounds like acid reflux also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD.
This is very common but can cause damage to the esophagus over time. There are now many over the counter meds available for this and sleeping with your head raised can help. If it persists though, you need to see a doctor, your PCP or a gastroenterologist.

In brief: How are you feeling?

The reason this hasn't been answered is because lots of things can cause what you have described.
Are you having fevers? Do you smoke? Are the symptoms still there? If they are, you should probably get checked out by your regular physician. Do you have a history of gastric reflux? Based on your procedures it seems you may already have been seen for this? What did they think?
