Question High bile blood count ..what does this mean ?

HI I just came from my uroligist office (i've been getting stomch pains for around 6 months now)and he said their may be a problem with either my liver or gallbladder . since my bilirubin blood count was very high ..Needless to say I'm a a little stressed ..what could be wrong with them ? And What are the other signs I should be looking for ? He redid the blood test and I'll be seeing him on Tuesday .. It's going to be a long week....I'm not much of a drinker so I know it's nothing to do with that but my bowl movements have been very pale a few times in the last few weeks and I know that's a sign of liver disease ...yup I'm stressed

Re: High bile blood count ..what does this mean ?

Have you been sent for an ultrasound on the liver and the gallbladder yet?the high bili in light of your symptoms could just be something like a gallstone blocking the duct or alot of more benign things other than some major type of liver or GB issue.the tests will tell you some info(labs?) but obtaining some actual look into the area would be probably the best way to really 'see' what the actual problem may be.either an US or a CT would benefit you here.i am sure your doc will ask you to have at least one of these tests when you see him for the blood work would be the next step in the Dx process.sorry i couldn't give you more help here but alot will depend on what shows up in the tests.hopefully this isn't a major type of issue for you.please let me know what you find out,K?
