I had a nonfunctioning gallbladder also and had it removed. I never had a so called "attack", but I always felt pain in my right side for several months before we knew it was my gallbladder. It just progressively got worse as the weeks went by.
You certainly have had quite a bit of surgical procedures in a short time, I sympathize with you.
I had my gallbladder removed laproscopically and there were only 4 small incisions so there really isn't much cutting involved. Have you discussed your concerns with your doctor? That's about all you can do.
I've had a c-section also, and it hasn't affected me by having the gallbladder removed.
The only problem I forsee is that if you don't have it removed, you will become progressively worse and can have an attack which could put you in the hospital.
Maybe some others can give you some insight, but if it were me, I'd probably do it...you're just sore for a few days, and there are rarely any complications. Good luck!
