Hi Christine, In 1989 I had my gallbladder removed and experienced pain and elevated liver enzymes afterwards. After many tests and a lot of pain, they found out that I had "Spinchter of Oddi Disfunction" The spincter of oddi is at the end of the common bile duct which leads from the gallbladder into the intestines. With all the gallstones that passed over the years, the spincter became hard. It is supposed to be like rubber,and open when a person eats and needs bile to help digest food. When it is hard it does not open and therefore the bile builds up, and causes pain and elevated liver enzymes. This problem is correctable.

Talk to your Doctor about this possibility. The way they test for this problem is with a test called an ERCP. Of course this is only one possible explanation for your problem, but it bears discussion with your physician. Good Luck. Let me know how you make out..........Jeanne
