Hi Deepak

Thanks for writing in.

The serum amylase report is very high. This suggests an acute pancreatitis which can explain the pain she had. Sometimes the stones in the gall bladder pass down to the pancreatic duct and obstruct it causing pancreatitis. Also the SGPT and SGOT are very high. I would suggest you get her admitted with some Gastroenterologist ASAP. A symptomatic gall stones requires a surgery. I would also be happy to review the tests reports , so please send me over all the tests reports in detail.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
