elevated liver enzymes

My 59 year old husband had radical surgery for small cell bladder cancer just three weeks ago.  He had neoadjuvant chemo with etoposide and carboplatin ending eight weeks ago.  He takes allopurinol for gout, plavix because of a previous stroke and crestor for high cholesteral. He also recently took indocin for a gout attack.   The pathology came back negative for invasion in the lymph nodes and the prostate and the left kidney.  My guestion has to do with his most recent blood test.  His AST 145, LDH 202, alt 229, ALK Phophatase 259 Bilirubin .8.  The Oncologist is concerned that the cancer may have gone into his liver and/or bones.  Could the elevated levels be indicative of the medications that he is on?  While undergoing chemo he was off the Crestor and all blood tests were within the normal range.  Also just this week he had a flu shot.........could that have raised the levels..........just grasping for answers.  Any answers will be greatly appreciated.  Thankyou!
