Had groin hernia surgery 6 weeks ago. Started cardio again and noticed that my GERD is worse after exercise. Could the hernia surgery cause this?

In brief: DGL is used to

help with acid reflux and is safe.
If you take licorice that is not DGL, over time it can raise your blood pressure. Please consult w/your doc. Peace and good health. Previous surgery unlikely cause.
