Welcome to ehealthforum

I am sorry to hear about your state.High bilirubin indicate liver disorder and gall bladder contraction can also be due to stones,infection,inflammation etc.
You might be requiring dietary modification and medications first to lower bilirubin levels.If needed Gall bladder might also be treated by drugs otherwise surgical treatment is the option.
COnsider visiting a Physician for evaluation.

Take care!

Bile duct blockage can cause bile to back up to the liver and then into the blood. This may be difficult to separate from other liver problems, but in your case it sounds as if they have already diagnosed a gallbladder issue.
