    Having a liver transplant for gallstones seems pretty evasive. Why doesn't he simply have his gallbladder removed?

    Or did you forget to include half the relevant information in your question?

    Also, unless your dad is rushing into surgery "right now", they aren't offering a Hep C liver. They are asking him if it's acceptance in the event that one becomes available.

      Dr does not want to remove gallbladder because he is on transplant list, that's why they offered hep c liver
