Lost weight, lost GERD symptoms, however, how frequently do I check the esophagus for any problems that could have been created by past reflux ?

In brief: Depends

I there was no damage to the esophagus and it have no symptoms, no need to check it at all.
If there was damage, particularly barrett's esophagus, may need surveillance every 2-5 years.

In brief: Look for symptoms

Look for the symptoms of acid reflux.
There really isn't a good reason to do a test unless you are having symptoms.
