bilirubin go back but in time

What do the doctors say cause My son Is 5 months and his levels never went to normal he left the hospital level on a 9 after the Kasai but they just went up and down and his poop all different colors and also has had 2 infections they already listed him in the transplant list

How is the poop color? I am afraid that sounds like the drainage isn't too good. Is she on Ursodiol and antibiotic? Ursodiol helps bile drainage and antibiotic prevents cholangitis. As scary as liver transplant sounds, many BA babies get their lives back after transplant. Most importantly, always pray.

Hi! my son got operated in brescia italy when he was 3 months old,after operation he’s totally ok until now,The medicine that they prescribe



Myscostatin suspension


Ursodoxycollic acid(Duerasil)

konakion (Viramin k)

It depends with the operation if the surgeon are good,for me In Brescia Italy is one of the best hospital to treat kasai Surgery or liver transplant.
