It is unclear: Hi kitten40047. The jaundice and elevated enzymes are concerning. It is reassuring to hear that the ct was negative. There may be other reasons for her symptoms. However, in the absence of any other explanation for the symptoms she has, you may want to have mom undergo additional tests, including perhaps MRI or endoscopy, which may shed more light on the pancreatic and liver areas.
