Gall bladder removed. Having upper abdominal pain, elevated liver enzymes, throat tightness, pressure in head. Suggestions?

I had an episode three nights ago at work. Had terrible pain in my upper abdomen for about four hours. Almost identical pain to having a gall bladder attack but I had mine removed three yrs ago. Have elevated liver enzymes . Also have throat tightness at the base of my mech at collarbone. Been off and on for two months. Non stop for three days now. Feels like hands wrapped around my neck that sometimes causes pressure in my head.

Thanks for writing to H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding upper abdominal pain, elevated liver enzymes, throat tightness and pressure in head. You developed all these after removal of your gall bladder.

Your all these features indicating towards gastroesophageal reflux, but increase liver enzymes needs further evaluation for -

(a) Liver function test

(b) Liver scan.

I hope these investigations will disclose the fact that may be managed accordingly.
