Hubby recently had ultrsound and full blood tests to try to identify back pain (pancreas area) and all test came back fine. Ultrasound checked pancreas, kidneys, liver, gallbladder and spleen and no issues were detected. 

Pain in back continues and gets worse with certain foods, he is now restricted to fruit, yoghurt, macadamia nuts and coconut. Everything else increases the pain. Pain is always there now but is at least tolerable if foods are restricted to the above mentioned. His hands periodically become yellow although no gallstones or obstruction showed in ultrasound.

Would an MRI or CT Scan likely show up something that the ultrasound didn't that may be causing the pain?

The GP thought then that it might be spinal but couldn't account for why food would effect the pain if it was spinal.

Any thoughts?

    Well D-Day tomorrow (Diagnosis Day)...DH had the CT Scan on Friday, called the surgery on Saturday morning to find out if the results were in and was told they were but that the doctor wouldn't be back in until Monday so to call back then.

    Half an hour later he got a call from the surgery to say another doctor had looked at the results and wanted DH to come in as soon as possible, oh nothing urgent umm everything is fine but could he come in on Monday to see the doctor?

    Hmmm we have had calls like this before and it is always bad news that follows!

    Anyway crossing our fingers that whatever they found isn't too bad, will update when we know more neutral
