Should I worry if my gall bladder was removed and a gall stone was left behind and a surgical clip. My surgery was 12/2016?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Gallstones are located within the gallbladder. If your gallbladder was removed them the stones were most likely all removed with it.
You will need to discuss with your doctor why the clip was left. These decisions are usually made on a patient to patient basis.
