You are recovering from surgery, I'm sure you have been given dietary suggestions, and trust you haven't eaten any solid food.  After three days, you are still healing.  Keep in mind, about 1/4 of your stomach was cut and wrapped around your esophagus.  I'd certainly contact your doctor, but you have had a very big surgery, and should expect discomfort for a week or so.  That said, I've had the surgery, and the long term results have been wonderful, but I certainly didn't feel very well for a couple of weeks.  I would strongly urge you to review your dietary requirements following the surgery, follow them exactly.  You shouldn't be able to determine if your reflux symptoms have been reversed for at least a month.  
On the postive side, I'm three years post the procedure, and absolutely zero GERD issues.  Stay in touch.
