Are hernias common with gut diseases?

I have celiac and I have always wondered if the disease just get progressively worse. what's to stop it getting so bad to the point that my abdomen walls can't contain my small intestine in place that it just falls down inside of my legs? because the nutrition isnt being supplemented to hold the muscles thight and strong so the skin inside just opens up. so therefore part of the the small intestine would rest on the bottom of my feet entangled around. I have had a MRI of my abdomen but they werent accurate in my case maybe we did it wrong. Or would you have died way before then? or does it depend on person genetics and mindset?
