Hi and welcome to HCM.
Gallbladder can be removed with no risk even in patients with much higher liver damage than Hepatitis C. These is a risk of bleeding if you have cirrhosis, but if not then do not delay surgery because stones can cause some serious problems. Hep C is unfortunately incurable but it can be in less or more serious phase. You need to do often work ups, care for diet, take medicines and everything will be fine.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
