If my husband had his gallbladder removed 5 months ago but had to have more tests this month and we found out that he still has his gallbladder, do we have a case?

It sounds like you could have a case. My biggest concern would be what did they remove, if not your husband's gallbladder?  Further, I'm sure you paid for this procedure. Thus, if you didn't actually receive the procedure then you should not have to pay for it. I would highly recommend consulting with an attorney.
