I did not include a debt in my bankruptcy

I am not a bankruptcy attorney, but it is my understanding that if you do not include a specific debt on your Schedule of Debts -- one of the documents that must be filed with the court to begin your bankruptcy --it is not discharged in your bankruptcy and therefore you still owe it. Do you think your bankruptcy attorney understood your question? Perhaps you should ask him/her your question again.

If your attorney continues to give you the same answer, I suggest that you contact another bankruptcy attorney and ask the same question, just so you can be 100% confident about the status of the debt you did not include in your bankruptcy. Another option is to contact the clerk with the bankruptcy court where your bankruptcy was filed.
