rajcharan - How high?, I have low ejection of gall bladder with no stones, my bilirubin is always around 1 to 1.5 range.
Normal total bilirubin level should be 0.2~1.2, mine has been between 1.7 ~ 2.0
Titchou - My bilirubin was elevated when I had my gallbladder out. It went back to normal a few weeks after having it removed.
Yes it is typical for bilirubin levels to rise after cholecystectomy, as well as elevated liver AST ALT levels for a little while with no complications.
My worry is that what if I decide not to have the surgery, not knowing if my gallbladder is inflamed
Another thing I want to see is does people with high bilirubin levels get chronic diahhrea
easier after the surgery? After all bilirubin is excreted into bile in the gallbladder by the liver...
