Greetings from health care magic
As your mother has the problem of hiatus hernia that is the cause of constant GERD and the cause of barrett oesophagus. Yes it is pre acncerous stage. The operation not only for this but for hitus hernia too. You should go for operation.
Thank you

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum

Yes surgery will be suggested here, considering her age and disease.
Along with this, and after the surgery, she can take homeopathic medications safely for symptomatic relief.
As pain medication and antacids cannot be given to her for long, due to barrets oesophagus.
