I have also had my dose increased to two a day. I still belch, but it is holding slightly better than before.
I still think (or hope) surgery will eventually fix my problems In the meantime, I think pantoprazole (they market it as somac here) is a lot more effective than Nexium. It seems to have fewer side effects too.
I will be very interested to read about your progress. I have been on the double dose of pantoprazole for only 1 week.
