Some years ago, prior to being diagnosed with liver cancer from hep C in '05, an ultrasound showed an enlarged bile duct. I was told this is usually due to gall stones. However, a followup CT scan showed no stones. Perhaps this was from hep C, I'm not sure. However, when I had surgery to removed the rt. lobe of my liver, they also took the gall bladder which is attached to the underside of the liver. I've never had any problems at all from not having it.
I think "a bad gall bladder" is way too vague. You need to follow up with the doctor and find out exactly what is going on.
