Your high bilirubin count and itchy skin indicates that you have some
sort of obstruction to the bile duct , the channel that brings the bile
produced in the liver to the intestine. You could have primary liver
disorder which might have affected the smaller ducts (Hepatic ducts)
that carry the bile or you could have the main duct called the common
bile duct blocked by a stone or scar tissue from repeat inflammation.
What you need is a sonogram of the liver and gallbladder
first. You need
a complete set of liver tests and also immune studies to include ANA,
Native DNA. Alpha fetoprotein
,Anti smooth muscle
antibodies and also
antibodies. If there is significant obstruction , your
stool will be clay colored also. Your blood Alkaline phosphatase
be very high.
Hope you can discuss these with your doctor and get tested properly
before they can decide on the treatment.
I wish you the very best.
