Yes, liver enzymes can be elevated after you have been on Orudis for a while.
Hepatic side effects have included elevations in liver function tests, which may occur in up to 15% of patients. Jaundice has been reported rarely. Elevations in liver function tests three times normal values have been reported in less than 1% of patients receiving ketoprofen during clinical trials.
There are a few interactions (which may not be related, depending on whether you were taking them together) but none of the interactions indicate anything about elevated liver enzymes.
