Hello dear

Warm welcome to Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query in details .

* This is in relation with chronic gastritis or ulcer in stomach following
consumption of long term antibiotics , pain killers .

* Definite diagnosis with upper GI endoscopy is mandatory to figure out
the issue and manage in accordance to that only .
* This has nothing to do with hernia surgery per se .

Hope this will help to clear your doubt .
Wishing you fine recovery .

Always welcome for any further assistance anytime .
Regards .
