Brief Answer: Consult General Surgeon for further management Detailed Answer: Hi Namasthe Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of your day Thanks for providing the detailed reports. After going through the reports, i would conclude the following problem. 1.Obstructive Jaundice: Significant elevation in Liver enzymes,with elevated direct bilirubin point towards considering the diagnosis of Obstructive Jaundice. Its likely to be due to some blockage in Common bile dict( duct carrying bile from Liver to Duodenum).
