Hiatal hernia, gastritis, duodenitis, galballder stones, polyps. Had many abdominal surgeries, medication allergies. Suggestions?

I have a hiatel hernia , gastritis , duodenitis & a gallbladder that has stones, polyps & is diseased. I have to contact surgeon tomorrow about gallbladder. GI dr is reluctant to have hernia repaired surgically. Have had hiatel hernia for years, but gastritis @ duodenitis were recently diagnosed. I dont know if it is related or not, but I am a Celiac, have slready had 7 abdominal surgeries and have many medication allergies. Whatwould you recommend?

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
Of course that gastritis,duodenitis and hiatal hernia are realted. Hiatus hernia is probably the cause of all it. and oly surgery can improve your sympotms if medicines arent helpful. But surgery in your case may be complicated since there is probably excessive adhesions formation. So you need to consult with your gastroenterologist and surgeon about all this
Wish you good health. Regards
