Depends on how: Much of elevation and how soon after surgery. If it is sudden elevation shortly after surgery, it could mean something bad, like retained stone, obstruction of common duct, liver damage, etc. Conversely, if is is a slight elevation years after surgery, then it is probably not even related.
