Continue workup: Your physician will continue the work up to figure out what is going. S/he has the advantage of knowing much more about onset and relationships between the various symptoms and findings, your age and risk factors, etc. I suspect some imaging (ct scan or PET scan) will be done soon and possibly even biopsy. Do not delay in getting any of the tests done. ...Read more

If : If your liver enzymes are elevated due to the simvastatin, and you have been off of it for 8 weeks then your doctor should expect a decrease. The numbers may not be normal yet but they should be trending down. If they have not changed, then other things need to be ruled out, hepatitis or high triglycerides for example. Your doctor may also want to order an ultrasound of your liver to look for changes such as fatty liver which may contribute to elevated liver enzymes. Best of luck. ...Read more

High liver count due to alochol, now normal. Had 2 days of alcohol after that. Test 2 days later normal. But weird bloated feeling. Enlarged ?

Liver and Alcohol: This is very consistent to the damage that can be done by alcohol and how the liver can bounce back. But, abusing your liver again makes me wonder how many times you will get away with experimenting with it's health. The second set of labs after drinking for two days may very well have been too early for accuracy. The bloating and swollen liver is exactly what should be happening. ...Read more
