Hepatitis: Has the patient been tested for hepatitis A,B and C? Autoimmune hepatitis is also a possibility. Toxicity from medications or alcohol may not be likely. A simple gall bladder polyp shouldn't cause liver enzyme elevations. The US didn't demonstrate a fatty liver. A gastroenterologist is best to evaluate her. An abdominal surgeon can give advice about whether to remove the gall bladder and polyp.

Not related.: Your liver enzymes are mildly elevated, most likely due to fatty liver. Your bilirubin is fine following a cholecystectomy.
