noted history of jaundice. it is possible that you have an obstruction (may be due to gallstones or tumor lesion) somewhere along your hepaticopancreaticobiliary tree causing your jaundice and elevated liver enzymes. it is best if you consult with a doctor, preferably a general surgeon or a gastroenterologist, for physical examination and clinical evaluation. other diagnostics (such as ultrasound, ERCP, ct-scan, other blood exams, etc.) and management (medical and/or surgical if indications are found) will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.

good day!!
