So, you had gastric bypass and not the sleeve?  Normally if it was gastric bypass, the surgery cures gerd .   by removing the stomach, there are few cells to produce acid.  Question, have you gained weight back at all recently? What type of bypass did you have?  There are a couple of different ways they do it.
