Elevation of Total Bilirubin
My Total Bilirubin has elevated since my surgery June 30th 2010. I was curious to find out what was your number, and should I be concerned? I noticed the elevation happened right after the surgery.

I would point it out to your PCP and surgeon. Mine hangs around .5 and never got very high just after surgery either. According to my lab they would flag it once it reaches 1.2. Too high would indicate jaundice.
Go to a dr. and have it checked out- i eventually ended up at a liver specialist (a hepatologist), who said keep an eye on it, but it's no biggie.
