Liver enzymes - help!

My liver enzymes have always been a little above normal which the docs attribute to statins. But for the last two times (July and just recently) they have crept a little higher than they’ve ever been.

One of them is ALP which can get higher because of bone metastasis. Has anyone had this happen to them and if so, how high was it if/when metastasis was discovered and how quickly did it rise?

Thanks in advance for your help

    What did your doctor say about it? In general you can't diagnosis a recurrence from blood work. If they suspect you have bone mets they would do a scan. I had no signs of bones mets at all.

    My PCP ordered the most recent blood work so my oncologist hasn’t seen them. He didn’t say anything about the first rise when I saw him in June.

    My PCP raised the issue at my appointment this week and it has been swirling in my head since then. I was already scheduled for more bloodwork in November so my PCP didn’t order more.

    I’m just trying to stop the panic which led me here.

    Thanks for responding -
