My daughter is 36 weeks pregnant She had blood work

Patient

Q: My daughter is 36 weeks pregnant. She had blood work done May 26th because of severe itching. They called her yesterday and said her bile level is elevated which we already suspected. She is now taking Ursodiol 300mg and they are seeing her Monday 6/8. She has so much swelling that it hurts. My concern in Pre Eclampsia. She also had her gall bladder removed May 2012. During the procedure they knicked her liver in 2 places. She was very ill for quite some time and has had complications off and on since. Should we take her to the hospital or wait until Monday for her OB to see her. I am concerned about her and the baby. Thank you so much for your time. Mary Thomas
