My mom has bile duct cancer, had whipple in March. Last labs done over the last two weeks all came back great. Much better than labs done in July and September.

Then all of a sudden within the last week, her skin has started to yellow slightly and there is a slight change in the sclera of her eyes. Has anyone experienced this with normal labs. All liver and pancreatic enzymes were well within normal limits and in July her CEA-was .7 ng/ml and her CA19-9 was 26.3 U/mL. Any suggestions.

thanks belinda
