Any suggestion for elevated alt liver enzymes levels?

I had lab work and discovered my alt liver enzyme was 179. After surgery I started taking percocet before surgery I took plain oxycodone. The percocet had elevated the alt to 87 a year before surgery so they put me on oxcodone I told the surgeons nurse this but she said my liver enzymes were fine to now take percoct. But now after a month and a half they have really gone up. So today they ordered plain oxycodone and did another Hep test but I haven t ever in my 51 years done anything to have hep and tested negative a year ago. My question is will my liver recover again? I am have a ultrasound on my abdomen next week. I thought maybe I could be sensitive to gluten.

Hi, your liver seems to be a bit sensitive to acetaminophene one of the two composers of percocet. I don't know if you are a drinker and if yes your liver recovery will start with stopping it (ALCOHOL) together with acetaminophen of course. There are many other painkillers in the pharmaceutical market more accepatables for liver. Meanwhile I'd suggest Legalon 140 mg three times a day and Vit E 100 mg three times a day, for a month, then test again your ALT liver enzyme.
