Thank you and best to all.
Hey buddy, now that you are back after some of your Mexican treatments I would just give a head's up about keeping up with your regular docs here, and following up on the new signs. Icterus (jaundice) can result from a number of things which may need to be checked out further.
Don't just assume it is cholestasis.
It may be, but might not.
You know my old saying "you miss more for not looking than not knowing."
Not everything requires a surgery, but everything we go through does require a lot of investigation......... keep looking !
Cheers and best wishes
PM if you need to chat
