    I just tried looking for info for you and came up empty handed. Have you tried your doctor's after hours line?
    You can also try asking the women at LLLI, they have a message board there (I hope it's ok that I post that) and someone there might know the answer.

    Not to freak you out or anything, but I would definitely call your doctor about the jaundice. From what I just read, it could be serious.

    This is from Wed MD to call your doctor when You notice jaundice; gallstones may be obstructing the bile duct, causing bile to back up into the liver and seep into your bloodstream.

    And I totally agree that you should call your doctor ASAP. Just to be safe.

    Oh yeah, and have you tried calling the main number? Sometimes they give you the after hours number in a message or just send you straight there.
