I had emergency laparoscopic gall bladder removal 6 days ago. My ALT was 181, AST 127, AP 163, Glucose 168, and lipase 9. 1mo. Before, all were normal. They did not retest my blood. Now I have UTI & given cedifinir. Afraid it will affect liver.
LFT's: I would not worry about that particular antibiotic in this setting, but I do think it is important at some point, when ever your surgeon deems most appropriate, to recheck the liver tests to be sure that they normalize. If they do, and if your bile duct was normal in size, you should be fine. Good luck. ...Read more

It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor who has access to this info.
