Very High LFT's Liver Funtion Test Inflamed Liver - Gallbladder Removal Surgey - Oxycodone ASPA - Acetaminophen Toxicity

On Oct.22, 2011 my Ast-229, ALT 580, Alk Phos 432, & Bilirubin was around high of 5mg/dl.  from my liver funtion profile test... they tested me for "ALL" Hep. Viruses as well as other viruses and I'm all clear. I "was" jaudice and "had" tea colored urine as well from Oct. 22-Oct.26 when I was relesed from in-patient care thru the ER still was jaundice & dark urine up until Oct. 29th 2011, as for today urine & skin color look normal- except for the burning/pain in liver. My Gallbadder was removed on Aug. 23, 2011 because it was so longer functioning/was diseased/with no real gallstones,just very few tiny ones...   Also,  have been taking Oxycodone ASPA for pain, I have been in pain on and off and was told from the LFT's that I had inflamed liver and I should be in no pain, as I am in alot of pain. While in the ER In-patient care at the hospital they did a Endoscopy Procedure (Empiric Biliary Sphincterotomy) on Oct. 24, 2011...and I had no stones in bile duct as they thought cause of very elevated LFT. I asked about if I had Acetaminophen Toxicity they seem to think not... because my LFT's are now what they call normal today as of Nov.8, 2011 ~ AST 23, ATL 51, ALK Phos 135. So I should be inflamed anymore as they say....I just recently had an Abdominal Ultra Sound of liver & kidneys all appear normal- doctor says they can't do any more G.I. (gastrol intestnile) related test and wants me to only have one last LFT blood work done on Dec. 22, 2011.  What should I do, I'm in a lot of pain... in many ways I feel doctor don't care that I'm worried about this pain and my have accidentally had Acetaminophen Toxicity by mistake, yes I went by dosage recommended oxy apap 325mg....2 pills every 4-6 hours, 12 in 24 hours - 3,900mg in 24 hours.  I took this dosage for 6 days non-stop and took this med. a few weeks before , right after the gallbladder surgey just a times when need for pain- didn't have much pain till Oct.13, 2011.  I think my pain was brought on by eating some fatty foods, and so I took the Oxy and became very sick and was admitted to hospital for 4 days or so.  Like I said they think I'm fine and should have no pain, and my liver shouldn't be inflamed anymore...But my liver hurts, feels like burning/hot and I'm nausea all the time. I feel as if I where misdiagnosed.... What can I do, what test can be done now? Can alone relate? Are my first LFT's damaging for my liver, did I have any liver damage- doctor think not, but I think he doesn't care?
