My liver enzymes have risen steadily the last three weeks. Alk phos was in 80's NOW 166, AST was in 40's now 190, and ALT which was in mid 50's now up to 234.
In process of scheduling a biopsy early next week to see what exactly is going on. Tx coordinator did not mention rejection, but rather the possibility that it is autoimmune hepatitis.
Has anyone heard of this post tx?
Side note: I originally was told I had autoimmune hep when diagnosed in 1990. However all my blood tests came up negative for it. My biopsies on my original liver showed giant cell hepatitis of unknown cause. So I was listed as a Cryptogenic case.
Not happy at all....just when I thought I was getting better! another setback.
Giant Cell Hepatitis,
