Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
Jaundice may persist for several more weeks after treatment is started and you should just be patient. you need to check you rliver enzymes frequently and report any new symptom to your doctor. If jaundice persist or worsens,you should do more detailed gastroenterolgoic work up to rule out some other liver diseases.
Wish you good health. Regards
