Both me and my husband have had our gallbladders removed and my son had a gallstone a few years ago - very common condition. But if you need advice you really need to speak to your GP.

As to surgery on warfarin, I have had operations whilst on it - normally you stop the warfarin a few days before then inject heparin before and after the surgery until your inr goes back within range. But this will all be arranged for you beforehand.
