Damaged: An elevation of bilirubin, especially one as severe as yours is a sign of damage not the cause. You need to be under the care of a gastroenterologist that specializes in the liver. Whether the damage is reversible or not depends on the cause of the elevation, which your doctor should be in the process of finding out or already knows.
