I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone could help me out. Sorry about the long post..
I have Endometriosis and recently had an operation (17th Jan) to treat it. Last week I had a phone call from my GP's surgery to come in for a repeat blood test as the blood results which came back from my pre-op assessment showed an issue with my liver function. The nurse told me to wait a week for the results, but the surgery rang me the next day asking me to come in to see the GP as they had my new blood results back and they wanted to discuss them with me. My GP told me my ALP level was 241 and my ALT was 197. It was a similar level prior to my op apparently. She didn't tell me a great deal, but felt my abdomen and liver and there was no pain or enlargement. She told me to stop taking my anti-inflammatory medication (Mefenamic Acid) and has reduced my dosage of Sertraline from 100mg to 50mg. I also take a maximum of 240mg Cocodamol a day ( for Endometriosis pain and have done for a few years and there has never been anything flag up in previous blood tests). I have been taking Sertraline, Mefenamic Acid and Amitriptyline since October/ November 2013 so I'm thinking one of these may be the culprit. I haven't had any adverse symptoms from any of them, so other than my Endometriosis symptoms (pelvic pain, tiredness, urinary pain) I had no idea there was even a problem with my liver. I never take any more than the recommended dosage of any of my meds, I don't drink, I'm slim and I eat healthily. The doctor says she is baffled but she isn't giving much away which is making me even more worried. She has ordered another blood test for a weeks time to look at the results following cutting out the Mefenamic acid and halving the dose of Sertraline. She said she is referring me for an ultrasound as routine rather than urgent... Is there anything for me to worry about? And what could these levels generally indicate? I'm really terrified that unwittingly I've seriously damaged my liver Thank you for taking the time to read this xx
