For the 4th week in a row, my AST and ALT are elevated - 111 and 166 respectfully. And this week, my biliruben is also slightly elevated, at 1.08. I'm scheduled for a liver biopsy (through the side) on Dec. 13, but they may require a transjugular liver biopsy sooner if my levels stay high. I'm allergic to iodine dye, which would be used with that. The doctors are saying the readings may be caused by the Hep C and may not be affecting my new liver, but they also say this can be signs of rejection, so they are watching closely. I am feeling okay, but concerned.
