Jaundice levels high at 12 weeks old

My 12 weeks old had jaundice at birth and received 24 hours of phototherapy. She stayed yellow up until 2 weeks ago her colour is just olive now. She feeds well but still sleeps like a newborn. My doctor did another blood test the other day and her biliruben level is still 103 and should be around 20 and her age. Ive been booked in to see a pediatrician next week but I dont think I can wait that long and I thInk I'll take her to the hospital today. I have stopped breastfeeding for 24 hours to rule out breastmilk jaundice but I dont think its that. Had anyone else had a similar problem? If so what did the doctors do? Thanks
