Gastritis is an inflammation of the protective lining of the stomach, which can be caused by weakness in stomach lining, allowing digestive juices to damage and inflame it, and also from a gastrointestinal bacterial infection.
A hernia occurs when an internal organ or other body part protrudes through the wall of muscle or tissue that normally contains it. If left untreated, your hernia may grow and become more painful. A portion of your intestine could become trapped in the abdominal wall. This can obstruct your bowel and cause severe pain, nausea, bloating or constipation.
The gallbladder is a pear-shaped, hollow organ that is situated below the liver, on the upper right side of the abdomen. It is responsible for storing and concentrating bile, a yellow-green fluid produced by the liver that helps break down fat for digestion. The gallbladder belongs to the biliary tract along with the liver and bile ducts.
