Blood work showed abnormal bilirubin. Pain in upper right quad. What does this indicate?

My 15 yr old son had blood work done . Bilirubin came back abnormal 2.0 what can this indicate ? Also, he complains of pain in upper right quad from time to time which is quite uncomfortable (at this point he is in bed for hours) . I experienced this as a child until I was approx 28 and had my gallbladder taken out. Is this the same with him?

Well before we can answer your question fully you need to provide the following details :

1. what does the ultrasound of abdomen say
2. Please give the complete Liver function test- bilirubin, ALT, AST, ALP - this would be mentioned in your report - if not please get a complete LFT done.

The pain seems to be like a biliary colic. If he has stones in his gall bladder- he would require surgery to have the GB removed- otherwise we can manage conservatively.
