Your son has been rather unlucky and has not outgrown his reflux. In fact he is still definitely troubled by the symptoms of reflux. There is no guarantee that the use of these medicines will help to get your son to grow out of his reflux. In fact the medicines will probably just continue to mask the symptoms and his reflux will recur when they are stopped. As he has a very strong possibility of having a life long reflux problem it seems that he would benefit from the Nissen operation which is done through a small incision using an instrument called a laparoscope. It is standard practice to first give medicines a chance as your surgeon has done here,but it is almost certain that she will need to do this Nissens operation to treat your son.
