Could diflucan (fluconazole) cause slightly elevated lft a week and a half after stopping use? (took 5 150 mg doses total, 3 days apart each for yeast infection.)

In brief: Fluconazole

This drug can produce hepatitis, and although the elevated levels you mention did not occur until about 10 days after stopping it, they may actually have been higher earlier and you caught these values on the downtrend.
The clinical significance of this is probably minimal. Sertraline can also produce reversible elevations in liver enzymes in about 1/2% of cases.
