Hi,
My father had gone through a Liver transplant surgery..almost 3 months back..i have been conducting all the required tests regularly like in 10 days...LFT, KFT, TAC etc.
But From the last 20 days there is an increase(2-3 times) in his enzymes level...SGOT is now 65...SGPT is 71 and GGPT is 198. I'm worried about his liver condition...is there any risk like liver rejection? pl consult me..

Hello,
The earliest symptoms of liver transplant rejection are feeling tired,nausea vomiting,pain abdomentc.As the rejection progresses,one gets fever,pain in liver area,jaundice also.
Sometimes liver rejection may not show any symptom.
Since liver enzymes have risen fastly in past 20 days,you must consult your treating doctor immediately.
Thanks
