elevated liver enzymes are common the first year or so after surgery, even without Seroquel. Rapid weight loss is really tough on livers. Mine were high that first year and then were back to normal sometime during year 2, when I was at or near maintenance.

I have a sleeve but my liver function was off too - much higher levels. My cholesterol increased as well even on my very low fat diet. Some of it is because of the hormones, toxins, triglycerides, Vitamins, etc. being released from your fat as you’re losing. It’s why some develop gall stones after surgery too. (I did ☹️.)

Once I stopped losing, my cholesterol dropped back to it’s usual levels (had always been consistent regardless of my weight for decades) & my liver function returned to normal too.

My surgeon & GP did more blood tests (almost every month) & ultra sounds to ensure nothing was untoward while I was losing & until everything stabilised again. Wouldn’t hurt to ask for additional tests just to ensure there isn’t another reason too.

      Last night, I decided to cancel my surgery for today 😰. I just feel so uneasy about the hospital and the fact that I only spoke with the surgeon once (not sure if that's normal or not)....it seems so transactional, plus a slew of other things that I feel should be handled differently - yesterday's call was the final straw. Looking for a another surgeon/facility to help me, hoping this is an easy process.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
