Done kidney stone removal by ultrasound. Now liver enzymes elevated. Why?

My wife had a two centimeter kidney stone in her left kidney smashed with ultrasound . One of the fragments got stuck so later that day she had a stent put in and then had the fragments removed manually. It is three months later and she is suppose to have a .7 centimeter stone removed from the other kidney but they are saying her liver enzymes are elevated. Why is this and what are the causes and the risks?

Welcome to HCM.
Stone treatment by this method does not cause this issue and also i need to agree that we do not ask for liver function tests at the same time.
Since she has that, we need to evaluate her liver further by other tests and take it from there..
best regards
