Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
it sounds like this is liver abscess or colangitis which is not rare complication of gallbaldder removal. i am not sure what patogene are you talking about but whatever it is it necessiate aggressive antibiotic treatment or surgery if this isnt helpful since it may lead to sepsis and death.
Wish you good health. Regards.
