Can you add a debt that was initially forgotten in your bankruptcy? And the answer is absolutely yes. Now, it's got to be added while the case is still pending, so if you're talking about a Chapter 7, you're talking about 5 months. If you forget and you realize you forgot during that 5 month period, then you could definitely add them in there.

The court charges a small fee to add them in, but it's definitely doable. If the case is already closed, then at least see our answer about reopening your case, which is also doable, but there is another larger fee from the court to reopen a case to add a creditor. So, that's the answer!
