She may be having regurgitation of his food which can happen due to relaxation at the junction of esophagus and stomach.
But to be sure further information regarding her associated illnesses, general physical condition and her examination by a physician is in order.

Ultrasound is not going to be of much help but Xrays after Barium meal may help.

Is it bone vita of bonviva.

If preparation contains calcium and vit D then it can help. In her case the problem can be due to decreased vit D as well as due to post menopausal hormonal changes leading to increased bone resorption.

bonviva helps in slowing bone resorption but it may cause GIT problem which she already has. GIT problem may also arise from oral vit D.

you should better get her examined by your family doctor for proper assessment and prescription.
