In brief: See hepatologist

You had some indication for a liver biopsy - part of the answer is likely to lie there.
What is the cause of your liver disorder that causes you to be on cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil)? This is a drug used to suppress the immune system (?Pbc, aih. Psc). You may have had some bacterial colonization of your bile ducts that caused systemic infection and the systemic inflammatory response syndrome you relayed.
