lump in throat, trouble swallowing

Been to 3 GPs & have had differing reactions.just asking what others in the know thinks I should do.
The doctors all think that its not anything sinister,I had acid reflux a so they are treating that with something which has totally knocked it on the head.its great!
My question is, if acid reflux had in fact caused my swallowing issues, how long should I expect the recovery to take?
I no longer feel like I have a lump there, but I still get bits of food that stick there &I clear my throat to get rid if them. Bread is the worst offender.

I've been having out for so long, its got better, but just wondered how long I should wait before returning to gp? Want to know if I should relax bout it, or go back.
Thankyou for reading
Z
