Welcome to HCM,
You hav tested for ony bilirubin or other liver function and viral markers were also tested.
May be you have viral hepatitis and it is showing decreasing trend so it should clear of in 2 weeks time.
If there is no other problem and taking normal diet you ma y resume light work.
If there is any supportive therapy given continue to take the medicines.
Viral hepatitis should be tested for HBSAg to know it is Viral Hepatitis B or not as it has propencity to go in chronic hepatitis.
If it is Hepatitis E it should resolve in few days.
As Hepatitis is water born take care of water and diet.
Good Luck
