Hi Abnewd,

This can be the begnening of the failure and your liver is responding by increasing the enzymes which is there. Although now a days many medications are given to prevent the transplant rejection and also transplant is done after doing much of investigation which is most suitable to the patient.

However, sometime it happens that there is rejection. Now, depending on the mechanism and intensity of the rejection and your current condition, the rejection can be managed with the therpay of drugs used to supress the immune activity in the body.

Hope this help you. Thanks
