Computer needs to relearn after memory is lost and there are certain procedures you need to follow for it to get ready sooner.

Avoid abrupt acceleration during this relearn process.

Try running the vehicle on the highway at constant speed for 20 minutes and allow gradual deceleration whenever necessary and accelerate gradually.

Go to city driving for another 20 minutes and remember to be gradual with the accelerator and avoid abrupt braking as much as possible.

Go back to the highway for another 20 minutes and check if it is ready. If not, disconnect the battery for 20 minutes and after reconnecting, repeat the above process and retest.

No reprogramming is required and replacing the ECU might still leave you where you are.

Check and ensure the memory fuse is good.

I am not sure which is the memory fuse but it should be in the underhood fuse/relay box.
