Has anyone had elevated liver enzymes after they had their ostomy surgery? I get normal blood tests every year with my health insurance, and after my surgery, it showed I had high enzyme levels. But when I told the doctor I had no large intestine, he was not as worried. Does that sound right, and has anyone had the same thing on your blood test after having an ileostomy surgery, that your liver enzyme levels are now higher? I know there are other things that can cause this. I would love to see if you're seeing something similar.
Turns out after my surgery, I went the way of gaining the extra weight, some good, which was the extra strength and muscle, some bad. I went from 215 post-surgery to 273 lbs this past summer. I was still traveling and eating like a college student. Well, it looks to be fatty liver, but it is looking like it was identified early, and since a major change in diet, I have dropped 20 lbs from diet alone. Feeling better and am continuing to lose the extra weight. I found out from reading some of people's stories that weight gain is a major thing that happens after surgery for many. Hope this information can help others that might have similar things like this that might happen to them.
