Everything was fine they said except for my liver enzymes

42 AST normal: 5-40 ?
70 ALT Normal: 5-57 ?

Anyways. They said it's too early for the MTX to affect my liver.

I think I remember a month ago I also had liver enzymes slightly high.

My liver can regen right? I dont drink, or take any other drugs.

The only other thing I can think of is infection or Fentanyl Usage.

As your pretty new to it I don't think they'll worry yet as it takes time to get your body and liver used to taking it, which is why side-effects usually ease over time. I've had my ALT go up to the high 60's before - it turned out to be a fluke they said probably as I'd also had other meds for a flare the week before, they also said they don't worry unless the figure hits well into the 100's. Just see how the next test goes, fingers crossed it won't be anything :-)

You know what? I'd suggest letting the doctors think about it and work it out. That's what you pay them for, and that's what they're educated to do.

There are too, too, many examples on this forum of people either exhausting themselves or scaring themselves silly trying to find a explanation for an unusual pathology result that, ultimately, ended up being completely benign.

That's my 2c.
