Topic: Question about liver enzymes
My Mom was diagnosed with this disease at the end of April, just a few days after her 69th birthday. What a birthday gift. She spent about 3 weeks in the hospital. She had fluid buildup in the lungs after she had her 2nd ERCP. They thought this was a gallstone/gallbladder problem at first. The first ERCP was to remove a stone or so they thought. The bile duct was so tight that they couldn't use their equipment. They had to send her to another hospital where they had better equipment. There, they were able to insert a stent. She is back in the hospital with cellulitis/blood infection which is going away. Today her doctor said that her liver enzymes were normal. My question would be are normal liver enzymes a good sign? I realize that normal is a good thing but am I getting my hopes up with this one result?
