Hello, 

In a long story short form, I had a SharePoint column that had multiple choices which I was using as a dropdown in Power Apps. I had to switch the column type over to single text due to some need that wasn't going as planned. Once I retrieved it back to the choice column, it lost all the choices that I had created. Not only that, it does not let me add choices anymore. Is there any way to resolve this issue? Any suggestion or advice would be greatly appreciated.
 Posting an image below to show how it looks now. The add choice option only increases the choice types in the dropdown. It does not let me manually type in choices anymore.

Have you tried to edit the choice column through the classic UI? You can get there from the List settings page
