cut bile duct during gallbladder surgery

father bile duct cut during gallbladder surgery, he was transferred to  university hospital and it was repaired. the doctor who did gb surgery told me "he was a bleeder and i saw cirrhosis"  he had to go to hospital several times to get fluid tap,so a pleurx catheter was put in and now home health care comes 3x week and gets 3000ml each time. i  have read that a bile duct injury is very bad. please any info will be appreciated

How was the bile duct repaired? Where, specifically, was the cut? Near the intrahepatic ducts, or at the common bile duct, or at the common bile duct near the pancreatic duct? It's important to know the location.

Is the catheter a T-tube? Is he stented, or?
