    Correct the sentence "i had a surgery to gallbladder"

    I have met with an accident 1 year back and had a surgery to gallbladder.
    Does the above statement correct?

    Thank you for your consideration.

    A past time expression(1year back) with present perfect is incorrect. Remove 'have' to make the first clause simple past, it will be perfectly OK

    The first question is whether the accident and the surgery were related. Were they related?

    I had an accident a year ago and (had to have)(also had) gallbladder surgery.

    Yes, they are related. The surgery was due to the accident. I fell on a rock from bike which caused internal bleeding in my galbladder.

    The following sentence would work, with either choice.
    I had an accident a year ago and as a result had to have (an operation on my gallbaldder)(gallbladder surgery).
